A very different Jewel Shepard featured in the “Tell Them” promotion by Hallmark Cards.


In 2011, Jewel Shepard was diagnosed with invasive breast cancer.  The treatments included chemotherapy, lymph nodes removal and a double mastectomy.

The hair is still short (and sassy!), but the breasts are fully reconstructed, thanks to the skillful work of plastic surgeon Charlotta La Via of Santa Monica.
