Laura’s Story

It was Christmas when Laura found a lump in her breast. The devastating news of stage 3 metastatic breast cancer halted her family’s life.

Chemo was agonizing. Everyone in her family sacrificed as her husband worked seven nights a week and cared for their six children. But day by day, Laura got through it and things soon changed.

As Laura went into full remission, she learned about the Y’s LIVESTRONG(TM) program. She was nervous, but knew she needed to start somewhere to regain her life.

Laura has since made lifelong friends, is exercising regularly and is there for her family again. The cancer may have stopped Laura’s life, but the LIVESTRONG program helped get it going again.
