Jo-Lea was diagnosed with stage 3 ovarian cancer at just 19. This is no easy task for any young women, but Jo-Lea is a force to be reckoned with and continues on with life like a true fighter.
In February 2016 Jo-Lea bravely shared her story on national tv, and just how far she has come. She featured on TVNZ Breakfast show with NZGCF Ambassador Sharon Hunter to help shine the spot light on Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month.
