WJLA’s Jacqui Jeras on Preventative Double Mastectomy: ‘The Risk Was Definitely There’

In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, WJLA meteorologist Jacqui Jeras is opening up about the preventative double mastectomy she underwent last month (video above).

Jeras made the decision to undergo the surgery because she has a family history of the disease. Doctors found a small tumor that had a 15 percent chance of becoming cancerous, Jeras revealed.

“That makes me feel better about doing what I did. It just kind of confirms that the risk was definitely there,” she said.
