Breast Cancer research should focus more on metastatic cancer, says this Human Resources specialist who was diagnosed with breast cancer at age 35.

Lindsey is a Survivor Artist alum, and she says she continues to participate in the Rare Chair Affair “to express my appreciation for what WBCC does on behalf of survivors, patients and anyone affected by the disease.”

“Plus, it is a really fun event!”

Her journey with breast cancer has been alternately challenging, scary, exhausting and redefining. But she has come through it with a commitment to valuing all that life offers.

“Life is meant to be lived. I try not to take anything or any day for granted. A wise friend coined the phrase, ‘Every day  matters.'”
