Pilar is another one of our returning Survivor Artist alums, who feels that her experience in 2015 was great because it introduced her to so many other amazing survivors.
“Cancer is a crummy club that nobody wants to join, but the strength and spirit of the women I have met along this journey have really changed my life in amazing ways,” she says.
Pilar, a Milwaukee sales specialist, feels strongly that health care systems need to continue to offer preventative care to women under 40, and that all women should have access to quality healthcare and to breast cancer screening.
“We get one chance at this crazy thing called life. Strap yourself in and enjoy the ride. Life is way too short to sweat the small stuff,” she said, adding that another great thing to remember about life is “Tacos, always tacos.”
