Jamie Ledezma

On Valentine’s Day 2007, 27-year-old Jamie Ledezma was diagnosed with breast cancer. She courageously fought breast cancer and underwent chemotherapy while 15 weeks pregnant. After six months of chemotherapy, she delivered a healthy baby boy before undergoing four additional rounds and a bilateral mastectomy that left her cancer-free.

Ledezma is a staff attorney at the Cancer Legal Resource Center and seizes every opportunity to educate others by sharing her experience as a young breast cancer survivor. She serves as the Public Policy Chair for the California Collaborative of Susan G. Komen for the Cure, on the Board of Directors for the Central Valley Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure and as a member on the Board of Directors for Sisterhood of Survivors.
