Rocksand heard about the Rare Chair Affair from friends at another Wisconsin breast cancer group, Sisters4Cure. “They both made it sound like something fun to do. In addition, the auction looked like one awesome event to share with other survivors,” Rocksand said.

A Milwaukee educator, Rocksand said she has become more grateful after her diagnosis. “It’s simple. I am grateful for life and all the things I once took for granted. My life is about living and finding new avenues to explore. I am grateful to God for research that has created life-saving cures.”

Rocksand would like to see more breast cancer research in the area of drug therapies that do not cause nerve damage.
