Also, I was asked to provide a short 3 sentence bio of myself that would be be read over their loudspeaker announcement during my Zamboni ride.
I was thrilled and honored to be Komen's survivor guest and was totally stoked to take advantage of this opportunity to bring awareness to Triple Negative Breast Cancer and to send out a message of hope to other survivors.
"Melissa Paskvan was diagnosed in 2009 with Triple Negative Breast Cancer at the age of 41 after finding a lump during a self exam. 7 years cancer free now, Melissa is very active in the breast cancer community bringing much awareness to this very aggressive disease, Triple Negative Breast Cancer that is affecting much younger women. Melissa would like to express to survivors and caregivers to never lose sight of hope, hope for more tomorrows."
