My Story



I am a two-time Survivor.

I was first diagnosed with ER/PR+ HER2- Stage 1 invasive breast cancer in the left breast in June of 2017.  It was discovered on my routine yearly mammogram and was treated with a lumpectomy followed by 33 rounds of radiation and medication for 5 years.

Unfortunately, in May of 2019, I was diagnosed with ER/PR/HER2+ Stage 1 invasive breast cancer in my right breast, again, at my annual mammogram. This time, I opted for a double mastectomy with immediate reconstruction.  Fortunately, I now have no evidence of disease (NED); unfortunately, because of my prior radiation, I had complications with my reconstruction and am still going through surgeries, including one this month, to finally get my life and my body back “to normal.”  I get a monthly shot and take medication daily to try to keep this hormone-receptor positive cancer at bay.

I received world-class care at the Dubin Breast Center in New York City which saved my life.  Sadly, this type of care is not available to everyone throughout the United States.

Although I live in NYC, my long-time friend and fellow survivor, Tricia (who lives in Memphis, TN), asked me to join her this year in the Komen Race for the Cure in the Memphis-MidSouth Virtual Race where the money we raise will go to help fund critical research and support the women and men facing breast cancer in this area.

In moments like this, your generosity can make a real difference, no matter the size of the donation.  Together, let’s show breast cancer patients there’s a whole community standing by their side.  Thanks so much for your support!
