When were you diagnosed?
Treatment location? MCV Massey Cancer Center
How was it found? (self examine, mammogram, annual checkup etc)
Do you have a family history of breast cancer?
Grandmother, aunt, and sister all battled breast cancer, but genetic testing discovered that perhaps my cancer was not related to genetics but rather to the “one in eight” statistic of occurrence among women in America.
As a woman what gives you your strength? (not necessarily a woman with breast cancer but just an average woman)
Faith and family!
Briefly state in your own words something about yourself that you want people to know.
Cancer is not always the end; for me it was a beginning! My breast cancer journey became an opportunity to strengthen my faith, reflect on priorities, and reconnect with family and friends. I’ve become a passionate supporter of Komen Central Virginia, for which I currently serve as President. Together, let’s help find cures and save more lives.
One person CAN make a difference......be that person
