Exposing Hope 2017 | Sharon Kilpatrick

“Hope to me is a better, brighter future and that tomorrow will be a better day for not just me but everyone.  The future is not guaranteed so without hope, life loses meaning.”

Sharon Kiltpatrick’s experience has led her to give back to the breast cancer community.  She wants other women to know that breast cancer isn’t limited to those with a family history and it’s important to be your own advocate.  As a volunteer for a breast cancer non-profit organization, she wants women to know about the resources available and that it’s not just about pink ribbons during the month of October.  Breast cancer has an impact every day of the year, whether it’s a diagnosis, treatment or survival.

Sharon is a three-year survivor.

Exposing Hope 2017 | Sandra Taylor

“Hope to me is waking up every morning and feeling blessed with what I have and looking forward to another day.”

Sandra Taylor, Robert’s Mammy, had no history of breast cancer in her family so she was surprised when her doctor shared her diagnosis.  She quickly realized that breast cancer doesn’t discriminate and anyone can be affected.  Sandra shared that she was fortunate that her treatment plan didn’t include chemotherapy or radiation, however, she empathizes with those who are currently enduring any form of treatment.

As a four-year survivor, Sandra has a new appreciation of life and it shows through the aperture.
