Atlanta doctor and two-time breast cancer survivor Jacqueline M. Walters, MD , is known fondly to Bravo’s “Married to Medicine” fans simply as “Dr. Jackie.” On the series, the two-time breast cancer survivor is very candid with her personal life and experiences.

Dr. Jackie has been a practicing OB/GYN for over two decades and this month, the beautiful doctor turns 60 years old. That’s hard to believe looking at her because she literally looks half her age.

Not only is she the doctor of stars like Toni Braxton, T.I., and Usher, she’s also founded the 50 Shades of Pink Foundation for Breast Cancer Warriors.

She’s a self-proclaimed “positive thinking warrior.” Dr. Jackie believes mental health care and support is essential following a breast cancer diagnosis. “I’m not sure why the mind immediately goes to death when we hear the diagnosis. [But] research has shown that the mind is a powerful thing and it controls everything in your body. Surround yourself with positive affirmations, positive people, and positive things.

“Even when I was in chemotherapy, I wanted to make others look good, [so] I would show the other ladies there how to make their scarves cute and make them look fly,” she said.

She struggled with and eventually conquered her battle with breast cancer, and now it has become her ministry to elevate other women facing the same trials.
