Laura was diagnosed in 2006 at 28 years old. She is married, and at that time her daughters were 12 and 5. Laura had a bilateral mastectomy and 8 rounds of chemotherapy. Laura did not let chemo bring her down – she worked full time throughout her treatment and kept life at home as normal as possible.
Laura recently celebrated 5 years of being cancer free! She is now part of the leadership team for the Young Survival Coalition-Milwaukee and works tirelessly to help other young women navigate their breast cancer journey.
