Susan is a three-time breast cancer survivor who is battling the disease again currently for the fourth time. She has had two separate primary breast cancers and two recurrences after her reconstruction.
Susan is active in the Central Georgia Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure and works with the American Cancer Society. She is a mentor to newly diagnosed breast cancer patients. Although Susan volunteers in the fight against breast cancer in many capacities, her passion is education, and she serves on the Central Georgia Susan G. Komen for the Cure Affiliate’s education committee. Her special focus is on colleges, where she speaks frequently at area colleges to raise awareness of breast cancer prevention and early detection.
“I am working to make sure that my daughter, future granddaughter or any of women will not have to face this dreadful disease,” Susan says. Presently, Susan is also working on the formation of a breast cancer survivor’s choir to “get singers together to make a joyful noise.”
