Mary Recktenwalt

Mary was diagnosed with breast cancer at 46 years old. She has a wonderful husband and 2 daughters that helped her survive her surgery, 4 rounds of chemotherapy, and 33 rounds of radiation.

Prior to her diagnosis, Mary had been the picture of health; so to say she was shocked when a routine mammogram found cancer is an understatement. Her goal now is to educate other women- no one is immune to this disease. You do not need to have a family history, or be in poor health. Mary is dedicated to helping the WBCC find a cure for breast cancer so that her daughters, nieces and friends can be free of the fear of the disease.
