Wife, mother, occupational therapist, avid runner
Over the past 13 years, Amy has been treated with chemotherapy, radiation therapy, hormone therapy, as well as had six surgeries, including a bilateral mastectomy and an axillary lymph node dissection. To treat her recurrence, she had chemotherapy while pregnant with her son.
With a background in occupational therapy and a love for running, Amy realized there was a gap in the rehabilitation process for women in her area who were recovering from breast cancer. She fought for a program that would focus on post-mastectomy cording and lymphedema therapy. By doing so, she has helped countless women who faced breast cancer move forward and regain as much of their pre-cancer lifestyle as possible.
