Lung Cancer Awareness and other Health Initiatives
Jaymie aka Ms CEO is very vocal and transparent about her lung cancer diagnosis and journey. We encourage everyone to share their journey with us. With WJMS as a platform, we will bring awareness to Lung Cancer, Diabetes, Kidney Disease and more.
Jaymie was diagnosed with Stage 4 ALK+ Lung Cancer in December of 2018 despite being an active, and healthy non-smoker. Diagnosis aside, she continues to work a full time job and run the operations of WJMS Radio while hosting 2 shows. She is working out as much as she can and actively fighting for her life.
As fate would have it, WJMS now provides her a platform to bring awareness to her cause, and others, while inspiring those around her to keep moving forward. Additionally, through her involvement with LCRF, LUNGevity and other organizations, she shares her story with the world to help erase the stigma that lung cancer is a "smoker's disease". Her motto: I may have cancer, but cancer does NOT have me.
