Share Your Story: Mary K.

Our January Share Your Story featuring Mary K.

Share Your Story, Mary K. used to drive past Ironwood Cancer & Research Centers every day on her way to work. In February 2017, Mary was diagnosed with triple-negative breast cancer. As an avid runner, she had no physical signs or family history that indicated she would be affected by cancer. Now, two years later, Mary is cancer-free and serving as a support companion to an Ironwood patient that is now on the very same journey.

“One of my greatest achievements on my cancer journey was being able to attend my son’s graduation while I was in treatment.

Here more about Mary’s triumphant recovery from triple-negative breast cancer with the support of breast surgeon, Dr. Edgar Hernandez, and her Ironwood Women’s Centers medical team in the Share Your Story: Mary K. video!
