​“Although I would not ever have imagined this journey that I have been on since the beginning of 2014, I feel incredibly blessed and fortunate. Had it not been for the Metropolitan Chicago Breast Cancer Task Force, I would not be the cancer-free survivor I am today with a rich future ahead of me. Thank you so very much!”
