Janet was diagnosed with breast cancer in October 2001 after finding an abnormal lump while doing a breast self exam. Janet was diagnosed with Stage 3b breast cancer, when a layering, not a lump was found during extensive biopsy. Janet had a double mastectomy as well as hysterectomy during her battle stages. This October, Janet will be on her 14th year survivor, but what is more amazing, Janet runs the Erlanger Center for Breast Health, working with ladies for their initial diagnosis and/or their re-diagnosis every day. She is our HERO and is so special to so many for how she always goes out of her way to help those on the journey she was 14 years ago.
Janet and her three boys & fiance live in Trenton, GA and would be a great Cancer Hero to represent Racing 2 Cure! Thank you for your time and consideration of this amazing women who has endured so much all the while still inspiring and assisting others during their battle!!
