In this powerful interview special host Sarah Brown talks to Jessica Morris, a campaigner and change maker who channeled her skills and career as a highflying communications executive to become a fearless campaigner to tackle a challenge that was threatening her own life; a rare form of brain cancer called glioblastoma.
May is Brain Tumour Awareness Month in the United States where Jessica lives, and there is much to talk and learn about brain cancer. Just last week, hundreds of brain cancer advocates rallied at Capitol Hill to push for more funding for medical research, acceleration of drug discovery, and development.
Glioblastoma has taken the life of Senator Ted Kennedy, former Vice President Joe Biden’s son Beau Biden and most recently Dame Tessa Jowell.
Since Jessica’s diagnosis, she has channeled her energy and frustrations into ways to accelerate progress against brain cancer. Alongside a medical team and a community of others living with brain cancer, Jessica founded OurBrainBank.
Listen to this emotive episode that explores Jessica’s journey since diagnosis and her optimism throughout the journey.
