A Young Woman's Battle Against Breast Cancer - One Day at a Time

 Jennifer McGoldrick at the Komen Event

“I think it’s cancer,” are not words that anyone, especially a 29 year old nurse recently relocated to Arizona, expects to hear.

Jennifer McGoldrick faced these words and the eventual diagnosis of breast cancer shortly after moving to Scottsdale to continue her nursing career at Mayo Clinic in Arizona. She shares her journey of undergoing multiple surgeries, chemotherapy and radiation treatment while still managing to continue living a normal life and working at Mayo Clinic.

Jennifer's positive attitude shows how the support of family and friends goes a long way to learning how to take life one day at time.
