Jill Weiss, 8-year survivor
Attorney Jill Weiss fought her breast cancer the same way she handles her court cases. Always be prepared. Challenge assumptions. And expect the unexpected.
“While you can’t control whether or not you will get the disease, you can control and make good choices about your treatment and doctors,” she advises.
As someone who initially did not want to speak publicly about her breast cancer journey, she has now seen the importance of being More Than Pink. “If I can get through to one person about the benefits of early detection and that you are your own best advocate, I’m good with that.” As the current Vice Chair of Susan G. Komen South Florida, she’s on her way to reaching many, many more through her leadership.
If you’re looking for Jill on Race day, you will most likely find her at the finish line cheering people on. “It’s very emotional. That 5K could be a 5,000K. Crossing the finish line is a sense that I can and I did conquer cancer.”
