Donna's Story

Donna.jpgKnowledge is power, and educating myself about breast cancer was what allowed me to discover the lump in my breast in 2000. After having a mammogram come back clean, I still had a strong feeling that my health wasn’t completely in the clear.

I insisted on further testing and in March 2001, received the results of a biopsy with a diagnosis of advanced and aggressive breast cancer. After undergoing a mastectomy, the pathology report showed that my cancer had spread to five lymph nodes. I immediately underwent chemotherapy and radiation that thankfully worked; I wake up feeling lucky every single day.

At the time of my diagnosis, I didn’t personally know anyone with the same disease as me. With no family history of breast cancer, I felt alone at first, but then quickly realized how much support surrounded me through my large family, friends, and a community that stood by my side during this journey. Since my first year participating, the CIBC Run for the Cure has always been a way to give back the love and support I received.

Staying strong for 11 years, my CIBC Run for the Cure team called “Circle of Friends” has seen mothers, sisters, cousins, daughters, friends, and co-workers diagnosed with breast cancer, which keeps us constantly inspired to continue the fight.

On Sunday, September 30, we are running for women everywhere. Who are you running for?
