If you are here, you probably know my story. Diagnosed at 40 with a 7 year old and a 18 old at home. With one of the most aggressive forms of breast cancer. The odds were not in my favor but 16 chemo infusions, 1 masectomy, 35 radiation sessions, 4 months of oral chemo and 3 reconstruction surgeries (and counting!), I am alive. I am healthy, happy and loving my life to the fullest.
However, I recognize my privilege. I had an absolutely amazing support systems in my husband, family and friends, a flexible job, and access to top notch treatment thanks to great health benefits. Not everyone got that!
I am here to make sure that everyone has access to the science, care and support that everyone deserves.
