Kim Utech

Kim was diagnosed in 2010 at age 41. She has a wonderful husband and two children who were five and seven at the time of her diagnosis. Kim had a history of fibrocystic breast disease so when she found a lump in February of 2010 she and her OB-GYN assumed it was a benign cyst and decided to follow up in December with her annual mammogram. At that time, a large tumor was found and a biopsy confirmed cancer. Diagnosed with stage 3C breast cancer, Kim endured 16 chemotherapy treatments, 3 surgeries, and 31 radiation treatments. She is overjoyed to share that she is now in remission!

Juggling cancer treatments and surgeries, while continuing to raise two small children and work part-time as a veterinarian, Kim chose to participate in RCA in order to bond with other survivors and share her story of hope.
