Co-Founder and Mentor Extraordinaire
I was diagnosed with Stage 2 her2+ breast cancer in May 2011 at the age of 45. I had a bilateral mastectomy, followed by chemo and months of Herceptin treatments. Since then, I’ve felt a new calling to mentor others who are on the breast cancer journey. I love my new BC buddies!
