"Laughing My Way to a Cure- We Got This” The title of her blog pretty sums up Jodie.
An absolutely beautiful 35 year old woman who gave birth, not even a year ago, and then was diagnosed with Neuroendocrine Small Cell Carcinoma stage 4 Breast cancer. A very rare and aggressive form. Why is she laughing? She’s awesome, that’s why. Her spirit and attitude is incredible. Absolutely incredible!! Relentlessly fighting this cancer and one of the strongest advocates for herself we have come across. Determined to find a cure she is now seeking additional support through Roswell in Buffalo, cautiously celebrating news of some positive progress. She is an ELA teacher in the Syracuse City School district with an incredible support system around her. Team Jodie extends from her devoted husband Bill, her new baby boy, parents, sisters, and many many friends.
