Mary Joyce Rose, a survivor since 2012. When I was in my breast cancer support group (where I met 2 new friends and fellow models Kathleen Keeley and Jenn Sheehy Everett), we did an exercise where we described ourselves in six words. My phrase was “Breast cancer has made me stronger.” That has proven to be true in so many ways! I am enjoying the best time of my life!Read More »
Linda Phelan, a survivor since 2015. Linda’s 2017 Story: I am walking this year for the second time. As a two-year survivor I am very excited to share the runway with my two beautiful daughters. The memories of the love and companionship during my battle are something I will always treasure. I am lucky to have them in my life and I can’t wait to dance and laugh down the runway with them in October! Stephanie and Meagan (Linda’s daughters): “We are walking this year in support of our amazing mother who defeated cancer and never lost her positive attitude…Read More »
Cori Liptak, a survivor since 2014. I feel so fortunate to have had the opportunity to participate in Runway last year and thrilled to be invited back to celebrate the 10th anniversary of Runway for Recovery. The experience of being with other women who have struggled with a breast cancer diagnosis or who have lost loved ones to breast cancer was extremely empowering for me. Prior to my experience with runway, I hadn’t really allowed myself to focus too much on what it meant to be diagnosed, treated, and surviving. As an employee of a major cancer center for over…Read More »
Erin Hollis, walking in memory of her mother, Kathleen Conley (2015) and in celebration of her friend Colette Hanna. Early last year, I signed up to participate in R4R to celebrate the completion of my mom’s treatment. Little did we know things would soon take an unexpected turn for the worse. Sadly, mom passed away in May and I walked to honor her memory in October. We just don’t know what life has in-store for any of us. Mom lived life with gratitude, vibrancy, love and exuberance. The best way I can think to honor her legacy, is to try…Read More »
Katy Haley, a survivor since 2013. Life has changed in funny ways since being diagnosed. To be honest, I looked at the treatment/etc more as a really bad cold vs. a serious issue, which I think helped get through all of the treatments. I don’t see myself sweating the small stuff anymore, I try to be more fearless when it comes to things that used to be scary to me in the past. Somedays I feel like I want to curl up and stay away from the world, but most others I feel like I can rule the world. I…Read More »
