Celebrating Miss Nebraska Jessica Shultis

This #ChildrensHospitalsWeek we salute Miss Nebraska 2018 Jessica Shultis, a volunteer for Children’s Hospital & Medical Center/Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals AND a cancer survivor. Diagnosed at age 19, Jessica’s health deteriorated to the point she had written a will and was ready to say, “good-bye.” But, she pulled through and continued studying at University of Nebraska-Lincoln, graduating at the top of her class with a 4.0. Today, she has a greater appreciation for life and is working toward a doctorate degree in psychology. “Illness doesn’t have to define what your future holds for you,” Jessica says. We couldn’t agree more!
