Anne Thompson

Anne was diagnosed at 43 and has remained involved in her breast cancer support group—which is how she learned about the Rare Chair Affair. Her interest in painting as a hobby, coupled with her active promotion of breast health in the school at which she teaches is all coming together with this project. “This was a natural extension of both my personal interests and a way to continue to help in the breast cancer community.” She enjoys helping others manage their own diagnosis and “demonstrating to family and friends that a diagnosis is not the end, but a new beginning to a different phase of life. There was a life BC (before cancer) and there can be a new life AC (after cancer.)”
