I'm very involved in the breast cancer community in hope of making a difference in reminding women that early detection is a serious matter, and please do your monthly breast self-exams and stay on top of your annual mammograms. This past year I've participated in and attended many breast cancer awareness events with my pink sisters, conference and meetings where I've spoken at and have made many connections, interviewed for a video story, interviewed for articles for CURE magazine, Toledo Blade newspaper and had my survival story published on various health websites and in a breast cancer survivor book of inspirational stories. I continue to blog on my "Triple Negative Breast Cancer, I Won't Back Down! site, reaching out to women across the globe. I'm not sure where this journey will take me from here, but I'm certain the best is yet to come! The ladies that I've met on this path I've been traveling on, they all inspire me as we were brought together because of our Triple Negative Breast Cancer (TNBC) fight, and I continue to fight for our Sisterhood.
Soon, I will be planning my TNBC Day 2015 fundraising and awareness campaign again ,for 3 years straight, as I represent the Triple Negative Breast Cancer Foundation as TNBC Champion for the state of Ohio. My passion lies here with the TNBC Foundation and us TNBC sisters, and I hope my family, friends and supporters will support me in my upcoming fundraising efforts to make an impact in research in hope in finding our targeted therapy very soon. Thank you God for bringing me through another year of enrichment and being with my husband and son. Tonight, I will celebrate LIFE with my girls at The Victory Center! Much Love, Melissa xoxo
