Sherie Drees

This is Sherie’s third year as a Breast Cancer Survivor/Artist, and she wanted to return because she wants to help others.

“I really want to make a difference for other people who are going through a breast cancer diagnosis. I also am still coming to terms with what my diagnosis and treatment mean for me now.”

Sherie, the mother of 9-year-old twins, was 35 when she was diagnosed with breast cancer.

Sherie has concerns about insurance coverage for breast cancer patients.

“I would like to see better insurance coverage,” she said. “I was made to feel like I shouldn’t get things checked out because it would cost money. I wasn’t taken seriously just because I was young.” She would also like to see more metastatic breast cancer research.

As a survivor, she believes “today is the prize.”

“Cherish the here and now; all those small moments are the most important ones.”
