As a television news anchor, Jane Gardner faced many challenges: intense pressure, deadlines, and bright lights. But it is off the air where she has faced her toughest challenge of all: fighting cancer – not just once, but four times. Gardner was diagnosed with breast cancer in 1999, then 10 years later, skin cancer. In May 2015 she learned she had ovarian cancer, followed by a diagnosis of lung cancer less than a year later.

Presented in conjunction with Jewish Family Service’s ongoing commitment to provide cancer education with community partners – the Brock Institute of Eastern Virginia Medical School, WHRO Public Media, and the Chrysler Museum of Art, this event is free and open to the public with a reception will follow.

RSVP today as seating is limited!
