Susan Gally, Survivor since 2015 I attended my first Runway for Recovery in 2011.  In 2014, I was diagnosed with breast cancer.  I never dreamed it could be me, yet I found great inspiration and support from having watched the amazing women and their families in previous Runway for Recovery shows.  I am grateful for Olivia’s amazing vision and her tireless dedication to create an event that supports families impacted by breast cancer.  I am walking to honor those who have helped me, those who have fought the battle and those who might one day need strength and support.

Erin Leary, Survivor since 2014 Getting a breast cancer diagnosis at age 28 was shocking to say the least. As a nurse, I thrive on caring for and supporting others during such uncertain times. I was so fortunate though to have so many kind people reach out to me and show there support during diagnosis, surgery, chemo and radiation. I will remember every thoughtful text, card, care package, and phone call. I am not only grateful for my friends and family, but the acquaintances and even strangers who were so kind to reach out.
