2016 May Survivor of the Month
This is Lindsey Wirht’s story. I believe it is important to share her story in her words as breast cancer is so sneaky and comes in all kinds of disguises.

Lindsey did attend the Survivor Reception on Friday, April 15th, 2016 in Ellis Square and was looking exceptionally beautiful while being escorted by one of our U.S. Marines to the podium for her introduction. On Saturday, April 16th, 2016 she bravely crossed the finishline of the 5K Survivor Walk in the 8th annual Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure. She is a brave young wife, mother and now Survivor!

In 2013, Hazel was diagnosed with breast cancer and in those first terrifying moments, she would plant seeds of hope that would one day flower into blossoms of survivorship..
