Jennifer Lloyd is Spreading the Word About Breast Cancer Research
A great friend and incredible role model, Jennifer Lloyd, shared her story of surviving breast cancer with our local WLBZ2 news station in Maine on Wednesday.
She is also a three-year breast cancer survivor and she’s sharing her story with as many women as possible. Lloyd was 39 years old, she had no family history of breast cancer and she had at least three mammograms. But in 2005, she found a lump under her arm. Her doctor confirmed her fear — it was breast cancer. “Nothing could prepare me for the phone call that would change my life,” she told one group recently. “So now I’ve chosen to pour myself into educating others about this disease and the truth about breast cancer.”
This Thursday, she’s headed to Harvard Medical School for a symposium on breast cancer research. I am so impressed by her work to spread the word about this. Please read her story, share it with friends and family and attend the symposium if you can.
I’m also raising money for the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer. If you’d like to help (even $5 or $10 helps a lot) you can donate using the ChipIn account I’ve created.
