Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Earlier this year, breast cancer became a close reality to our IronRoad family.  We couldn't be more thankful to share her powerful message of diagnosis, treatment, and survival.

"I was first introduced to breast cancer when my mother was diagnosed when she was 50 years old.  I was in college at the time and I remember helping to take care of her when I was home on summer break.  Her surgeon recommended that I start getting mammograms when I turned 30.  My mother fully recovered and I really didn't think much more about breast cancer until IronRoad coordinated with UC Health to have a mobile mammography van out to our parking lot for fast and convenient screenings.  It was at this time that I realized that I was 33 and overdue per the recommendation by my mother's surgeon.  I decided to wander out for a screening and one week later I was called back for a biopsy.  After another week, I was officially diagnosed with breast cancer.  My journey has not been easy, but I am truly grateful for it because it has strengthened my faith and deepened the bond with my friends and family.  I urge you to please be aware of breast cancer and please get screened regularly."
