Harvey Singer and Vicki Singer Wolf
HIS Breast Cancer

Harvey Singer and Vicki Singer Wolf joined me on the podcast to share their stories behind the pink ribbon. Vicki was first diagnosed with breast cancer at the age of 35. Following her third diagnosis, Vicki tested positive for the BRCA2 mutation. In 2008, Harvey was diagnosed with breast cancer as well. As a male breast cancer survivor in a very pink world, Harvey struggled to find information and support. Together, they co-founded the HIS Breast Cancer Awareness Foundation.

Kelly Thomas
40 and out!

My guest on this episode is Kelly Thomas. She was 33 years old when diagnosed with stage 3, triple-negative invasive ductal carcinoma in January 2018. Kelly shared her story behind the pink ribbon from finding her lump, diagnosis, and treatments. We also talked about the differences between being diagnosed at a young age versus later in life and how those who are diagnosed before the age of 40 are then kicked out of the adolescent and young adult (AYA) support groups once the patient turns 40.

Elizabeth Cluff
Impact One

This week, I am resharing the episode with Elizabeth Cluff, founder of Impact One Breast Cancer Foundation. She talked about her personal journey through breast cancer in 2007, which provided the inspiration for the non-profit. As Elizabeth thought about her support system, she was haunted and heartbroken over the women going through breast cancer that didn’t have a good support system. She wanted to send them a shipment of love and include vital items for their journey through breast cancer.

Janet Lindell
I’m Not Done

Janet Lindell, a fellow Edinboro University alumnus, joined me on this week’s episode to share her story behind the pink ribbon. She was diagnosed with stage 3C, infiltrating ductal carcinoma in November 2010 at the age of 35. Janet shared how she found the cancer, her course of treatment following her initial diagnosis, getting the news that the cancer had spread to her bones and now her liver, going through years of endless treatments, and living with metastatic breast cancer.
