Jamil Rivers was diagnosed with metastatic breast cancer at age 39. She vigorously researched to learn how to best prepare for cancer. She is in ongoing chemotherapy treatment, improved her nutrition with food and supplements, and now incorporates exercise, yoga, acupuncture and massage. She is doing well and taking it day-by-day.
Jamil has been able to continue to work full-time through her treatments and still live an active life. She believes that the research she did to prepare herself for cancer has been critical in her recovery and overall wellness. As a Young Advocate, she wants to assist other women by providing them with information to help them better advocate for themselves and create awareness about the challenges women face with advanced breast cancer. Jamil and her husband, Rick, have three children and reside in Drexel Hill, Pennsylvania. A fun fact about Jamil is that she loves to pop bubble wrap.
