She also recently underwent treatment for triple negative breast cancer. With her positive, can-do attitude, she and a group of other women modeled for the Cancer Center’s billboards and posters during a one-month fundraising event that brought over $71,000 directly to the Windsor Regional Cancer Center, Ontario, Canada.
This book was made possible with contributions from Rosser Reeves Jewellers in honour of family, friends, and customers whose lives have been touched by cancer.
