Marti Jester

Martha “Marti” Jester was the poster child for Breast Cancer Awareness month. She faithfully scheduled her mammogram every year when October rolled around.

Always.

Until last year.

In 2019, Jester let October slip past. Then November was gone.

Jester and her husband Arnold live in Union Grove. They have three grown children. She works for Reed Contracting and in her spare time likes to do photography and sell her crafts at shows.

She really had no good reason for waiting until December to get her mammogram but she finally went just before the year ended.
