As we wrap up National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, we want to recognize those around us who are continuously fulfilling our Purpose to “help people live well”… our caregivers!
Day in and day out, many of the women and men who stand beside us to meet our patients’ needs have been touched by breast cancer. And many are survivors themselves!
Celebrate them where you work! And if you’re a survivor, join our post and share your milestone! Here are few Pink Possible champions to get us started:
Maryann Clesceri leads The Healing Center, which helps victims of sexual assault and abuse at any point in their recovery. As a 16 year breast cancer survivor, she is an advocate for genetic testing and understanding your risks—and options—to staying cancer-free. Thank you, Maryann!
Suzy Wong has made a career of helping some of our most vulnerable patients and their families at the NICU at Aurora Sinai Medical Center! Nine years cancer free, and she continues to make a difference!
Chris Pecha from the Aurora Health Care Business Office in Germantown has been cancer-free for four years. She is an advocate to so many, and we are so grateful to work with her! Way to go, Chris!
Jacqi Akert, a Nurse Practitioner at Aurora Health Center in Waukesha, is a shining light who reminds us that breast cancer can happen to anyone. Two years and five months cancer-free, she not only beat this disease, but also completed the Team Phoenix survivorship program. She is our hero!
