In support of former classmate Susan Smith who was in her own fight this year against an aggressive form of Breast Cancer called Triple Negative Breast Cancer TNBC. A former PSCI grad and a retired HRC employee Susan is also a past-President of the Orillia Quota Club. Susan’s mother died of cancer at a younger age so Susan volunteered for five years in a cancer study at Toronto General Hospital. That study was all about estrogen based cancers. When Susan found her own LUMP it was quickly diagnosed due to Susan’s taking authority over her own body and getting care outside of Orillia (due to long waiting lists). In the end it was very fortuitous as the TNBC is aggressive and can grow very quickly. In Susan’s case; after surgery and then 8 treatments of chemo (THE RED DEVIL) and 25 treatments of radiation – she is considered cancer free! Hallelujah MANY OF SUSAN’S FORMER CLASSMATES HAVE DONATED THEIR JEWELERY TO THIS BRA. WE FEEL THAT FRIENDS ARE LIKE JEWELS AND WE HOPE TO RAISE ENOUGH FUNDS WITH THIS BRA TO HELP OTHER ORILLIA FAMILIES. For further information about TNBC – there are websites and Facebook pages dedicated to this form of cancer. Early detection is vitally important. Susan’s lump grew to 2.9 cm (a small plum) in less than 2 months.
