It Wasn’t a Zit, It Was Skin Cancer

Jolean Olson is a mother who enjoyed her time outside in the sun playing with her kids. That all ended when she discovered a large, zit-like bump on her cheek. When the bump remained several days later, Jolean met with several medical professionals. After getting numerous opinions, all saying she had skin cancer, Jolean asked for her pathology report to see the results for herself.

Jolean’s pathology report gave her clarity and a better understanding of her diagnosis. She chose a treatment plan best-suited for her, and is now living cancer free. Jolean shares her journey in a video developed by the College of American Pathologists.

A bit about me, I'm a wife, mother, daughter, sister, friend, employee and volunteer. I am married and have two children - one who aspires to be a secret spy ninja and the other wants be a doctor for toys like DocMcStuffins. I'm all about the Business of Life as I'm constantly trying to juggle my multiple roles. I come from a corporate finance background and during that time I started a women's group which still exists today. It was during that time that I became exposed to Plaid for Women and sought encouragement and advice through the resources. I'm so excited to be the President of Plaid for Women, and am passionate about providing a platform for women to #BeHeard. As you know, this organization is full of powerful, supportive women and I'm honored to be in this role.
