Thriver Through Cancer

Ever since I was diagnosed with triple negative breast cancer in 2007 and experienced the amazing generosity and kindness towards myself and my family in our time of need, I have sought meaningful ways to pay it forward.

I’ve participated in races, mentored others who are going through similar challenges, and have even changed my career path focus on supporting others’ physical and emotional wellness goals. Joining the BSNCF Board is an honor and a privilege, and with my particular background and experience, I hope to contribute a unique perspective based on thriving through cancer.
