Jessica Peterson

Jessica is a proud aunt of three beautiful nieces, and has worked for the same company for over 18 years. She truly enjoys being a leader for her team. In her spare time she loves watching movies, riding her bike on the towpath, being with family and friends, and dancing! She is a huge Cleveland sports fan, especially the Browns! She was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2019 and again in 2021. Jessica underwent multiple breast reconstruction surgeries, including a double mastectomy, with Dr. Lewis Diulus who has supported her the whole way. Now, her breasts feel like a natural part of her body which was a worry for her. “Dr. Diulus was incredibly supportive and worked to ensure that I was happy with my end result,” she shared. She advises other women facing a diagnosis to remember that they are stronger than they think they are. “Mental strength, positivity, and a good support system are extremely important. It’s just as much a mental battle as it is physical.” Jessica is participating in the Pink Runway to be a strong role model for her nieces and to build awareness of the importance of breast health and of all the options available to women!
