And that is exactly what the actress decided to do following the sad passing of her father from cancer and AIDS, an experience she says changed the way she looks at things.
The Isibaya actress reveals in a promo that has been released as part of the campaign that his father’s death from illness has inspired her to seek more for herself, and to use her platform to drive change in her community.
“Seeing my father suffer that way first hand, I coudn’t think of a child suffering that exact same fate”, she says. “That made me realise that..’Okay, we need to wake up to this thing.'”
Jessica details her partnership with Chalk, an initiative that looks after children with cancer.
“I can make sure that they are taken care of. I can make sure that…you have in me. You have someone who thinks about you.”
The campaign features other international names that include Jane The Virgin actress Gina Rodriguez.
