Ann’s breast cancer journey began on February 6, 2013 and she applauds Dr. Richard Cornella for her early diagnosis of Stage 1 breast cancer. Ann is grateful to the attention she received by Dr. Cornella and Solis Mammography. In addition, Ann had two dear friends that supported her: Theresa, also a survivor and Reuben, her big orange cat, both provided comfort and encouragement.
When Addy Jeffrey, a remarkable survivor, entered the studio this summer it was immediately obvious that she is also doing her part in Exposing Hope. Addy’s breast cancer was obscured on a mammogram due to her dense breast tissue. Her determination led her to secure the support of the City of Greensboro's Commission on the Status of Women. With their help, Addy successfully advocated for the passage of the North Carolina Breast Density Notification Law in 2014.
This exciting event, “The Sherlock 5K” is named after the chocolate lab whose playful
scratch led to the detection of Earlier.org, Friends for an Earlier Breast Cancer Test®
founder, Martha Kaley’s breast cancer. Sherlock has since passed away, but what
better way to honor this best friend and raise awareness and critical research
funding for this very important cause than to host a K9-5K in his name? This event is
so much more than just a 5K. It is a day of fun and activities for the whole family,
including the 4-legged ones!
