“[Hope is] a long and healthy life, an early detection test, and eradication of breast cancer.”

Lynn Smith shared that being a survivor of breast cancer has positively and negatively impacted her life.  Unfortunately, Lynn, a surgeon, still experiences some chemotherapy side effects which have forced her to shift careers.  On the other hand, Lynn’s support system from her family, her children’s school, community, church family, neighbors, and patients undoubtedly guided her through her battle. 

During her treatment, she was able to spend more time with her children and explore new career options and hobbies that she may not have discovered otherwise.  Lynn, a twelve-year survivor, hopes that no one will have to endure this disease.
