For many of you who have attended our events you know Victoria Pouches' story. She attended a Golf & Gala for Ovarian Cancer and through our awareness resources discovered that she may have symptoms of this silent disease. She took action and has been a strong supporter of the #TeamJags team and efforts. She has been a key note speaker at our even TWICE! Here is a great article written by the Lodi News-Sentinal about her recent journey with UC Davis's clinical trials.
From the article:
'The first things you notice about Victoria Pouchés are her infectious smile and laughter. She credits her positive attitude with helping her successfully fight cancer.
Diagnosed with late stage ovarian cancer in October of 2013, she was once told by doctors to start preparing for hospice care. But the strong, independent woman was determined never to give up. The feisty 60-year-old from Lodi continued her long and courageous battle, and after being enrolled in an immunotherapy clinical trial at UC Davis Comprehensive Cancer Center, her biomarkers today do not show detectable levels of cancer in her blood, and she’s regaining her strength and stamina that once let her run marathons.'
