Jody Jo has been a huge part of Fresno broadcasting since she was 15-years-old doing Sunday afternoon radio on KFRE AM.
In June of 2013 at the age of 38, Jody Jo found a lump in her breast while doing a self-exam in the show. It would have been at least 3 years before she had a scheduled mammogram and even then it might not have shown on the test. That self exam saved her life.
Diagnosed with the BRCA 2 gene and stage 23 breast cancer, facing 6 months of chemotherapy and 3 surgeries, Jody has stepped out to share her story with the firm goal of helping other women rather than focusing on the challenges she is facing.
"I want as many women as possible to hear my store to encourage them and maybe save their lives. "Check your boobs" is something I will be saying to every woman that will listen until the day I die. IN fact I hope after I die people still repeat those very important words," said Jody Jo.
This event is presented by the Fresno Advertising Federation.
