Amberlea Childs

Amberlea was diagnosed at age 36 with an aggressive, Stage 3 breast cancer and begins her story by saying “I am a 5 year survivor and so happy to be alive!” Now a breast health educator for Susan G. Komen of Southeast Wisconsin’s “Kohl’s Conversations for a Cure,” she has also been recently certified as a Food for Life Instructor and teaches plant based cooking classes around disease prevention. In both roles, Amberlea advocates for “women to take action and become active participants in their health.” Amberlea has volunteered for both the WBCC and the National Breast Cancer Coalition, lobbying in Madison and Washington DC on breast cancer issues—and now, as a Survivor Artist, she says she is “thrilled” to contribute her very meaningful chair.
