Black Widow Appears at Cancer Symposium; Scheduling More Appearances


Staff member
Although still fighting cancer, The Black Widow Jeanette Lee was back out doing one of the things she does best, representing the world of professional pool to the world. Lee recently participated in a Title IX celebration and symposium on behalf of the Jimmy V Foundation, a prominent cancer charity. The topic was the courage of women in the face of the challenge of cancer. Jeanette gave a speech, performed a billiards demonstration, attended the Wine Celebration Gala and participated in a round table symposium with other cancer warriors. Lee’s participation in this event was a great sign of both her level of celebrity stature and as to how strong she is feeling after what has so far been a 20 month battle with ovarian cancer. Lee takes an ongoing, daily chemo treatment with Lynparza which appears to be working exceedingly well, considering that her cancer is “in as much remission as it can be”. Lee commented on how it felt to get back out representing the world of pool, “It was great fun and very fulfilling. I very much want to use my battle with ovarian cancer to help others and the Napa gala and symposium did exactly that. I drew strength from it myself. The Jimmy V Foundation does great and very visible work and I value my association with them.”
