I’m so glad to be able to work with Dawn! She’s an amazing woman with a firm determination and a strong family bond that’s inspirational.
In Dawn’s Own Words:
My husband unexpectedly lost his job in early September 2001…then the horrific events of 9/11…then I learned I was pregnant with my third child. In October my midwife found a lump in my breast. In November I was diagnosed with stage 3 infiltrating ductal carcinoma. In December I had two surgeries, neither of which left me with clear margins. In January I had a right breast mastectomy, followed by four rounds of chemotherapy. I was bald-headed, one breasted, and pregnant…and it was a cold and wet winter in Georgia. In May of 2002, my little 5-lb.,11-oz. miracle was born three weeks early. When he was just four days old I began six weeks of daily radiation treatments. November 12, 2011 will mark my 10-year anniversary as a survivor.
My favorite quote:
Life is hard. God is good. Don’t get the two confused.
