I first met Jes in a college art class and we continue to stay in touch through Facebook. She is a GBM4 survivor. As of May 26, 2018, Jes has been nearly four years cancer free. She is dedicated to being her best self and follows a primarily plant based diet that’s gluten, dairy, & added sugar free. She is a continuous inspiration to all of those around her. Jes’ strength, hope, and love for life make her most worthy of this nomination.
