A Family’s Journey of Standing Up to Cancer

In this presentation, Janine shares her family's experience with the disease and the importance of continued work by everyone to support cancer survivors. Janine’s personal connection begins with her mother, who is a breast cancer survivor, and sister-in-law's mother, who had to undergo a mastectomy and is a survivor. Unfortunately, Janine and her family experienced the worst side of cancer when they lost their great aunt to the disease. Janine’s family handled the cancer diagnosis together, as a family. She stood by her mother during radiation therapy sessions and encouraged her mother to be part of a major study, a clinical trial.

Having stood close by, Janine took the journey of discovery, fear, surgery and recuperation with all the strong women in her family. She speaks intimately about her family’s experience while providing inspiration and hope for the future.
