Jody Nesti’s spirit of volunteerism is admirable. Jody was a long-standing board member of the former Northern Cancer Research Foundation and now is a founding board member of the new Thunder Bay Regional Health Sciences Foundation. Jody puts her heart and soul into furthering the mission of the Health Sciences Foundation – excellence in health care for all people in Northwestern Ontario. She is the current chair of the Development Committee. Jodi has a zeal for fundraising. Since 1997, she has been among the top pledge earners in the Bearskin Airlines Hope Classic, personally having raised over $25,000 in support of breast cancer research, patient care, education and awareness. Jody is a breast cancer survivor and often shares her story at special events with other women with breast health concerns. Jody’s participation in the Thunder Bay and District Breast Cancer Support Group as an executive member provides much support to women and their families touched by breast cancer. Her willingness to speak on the Foundation’s behalf, help out at special events and lead committees, speaks to her strong commitment to the activities she undertakes.
