On this truly special episode of the PRACTICING with Dr. Nathan Goodyear Podcast, Mitch Marczewski shares the inspiring story of his sister Jane.
Jane “Nightbirde” Marczewski was a young 31-year-old woman who fought a ferocious battle against breast cancer and won the hearts of millions of people worldwide.
Her legacy is tangible through The Nightbirde Foundation, a non-profit organization that seeks to support young women like Jane help pay for their integrative cancer treatments and provide hope.
Below we have included the full video interview along with a written summary.
The Nightbird Foundation: A Story of Hope and Inspiration
In 2017, Jane Marcheski was diagnosed with breast cancer at the age of 28. She was initially told she was “too young” for breast cancer, but she was determined to fight the disease. She underwent conventional treatment, including a double mastectomy, radiation, and chemotherapy.
Despite the challenges of her treatment, Jane never gave up hope. She continued to pursue her dreams of becoming a singer and recording artist. In 2018, she auditioned for America’s Got Talent and received Simon Cowell’s Golden Buzzer. She went on to perform on the show and inspire millions of people worldwide.
Jane passed away in 2021, but her legacy lives on through the Nightbird Foundation. The foundation was created by Jane’s brother, Mitch, to provide support and resources to young women with breast cancer.
The foundation offers financial assistance, educational resources, and a community of support for young women who are facing a breast cancer diagnosis.
The Nightbird Foundation is a shining example of hope and inspiration. Jane’s story shows that it is possible to live a full and meaningful life even after a cancer diagnosis.
The foundation is committed to helping young women with breast cancer find their own path to hope and healing.
The Importance of Early Detection
One of the most important things that Jane’s story teaches us is the importance of early detection.
Jane was initially told that she was “too young” for breast cancer, but she was eventually diagnosed at the age of 28. This is a reminder that breast cancer can affect women of all ages.
If you are a woman, it is important to be aware of the signs and symptoms of breast cancer.
These include a lump in the breast, changes in the size or shape of the breast, dimpling of the skin, nipple discharge, and changes in the skin of the nipple or areola.
If you notice any of these changes, it is important to see a doctor right away. Early detection is key to successful treatment.
