Why I'm participating in the Anti-Cancer Challenge:
In 2017, I was diagnosed with metastatic breast cancer. In almost 2 years, I've had every type of treatment for this advanced disease: traditional and antibody chemotherapies, surgeries, and radiation. While these methods have largely been effective and my medical status has improved, due to the nature of metastatic cancer, I will actively be in treatment for the rest of my life.
Throughout my cancer journey, I've been supported by incredible healthcare professionals, family members, friends, colleagues, and fellow cancer patients. I'm participating in and fundraising for cancer research because I want to give back to our community and reciprocate the support I have received. My hope is for scientists and physicians to have the resources they need to explore disease origins and mechanisms, and to develop new treatments to prevent and cure cancers.
