Recognize Aurora Caregivers who are breast cancer survivors!

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, The Healing Center

    Congratulations to all the ladies highlighted in the article! And praying for strength and HOPE for all those who are going thru the hardest part of the journey now–the surgery, chemotherapy, radiation.
    It’s been a little over four years since I finished radiation, and “Every day is a gift.” I don’t think of it as survival–I think of it as appreciation for what I have now. Enjoy your life !
