One Catalyst Foundation has been in the making since 2012 when our sister, daughter, and friend lost her life. Jessica Bongiovanni was 25 years old when she was diagnosed with osteosarcoma, a rare form of bone cancer. Throughout her battle, she endured chemotherapy, an amputation, and lung surgery, as well as the emotional and mental ups and downs that came with treatment.
