THE STORY:

My good friend Rebecca Timlin-Scalera was enjoying her life as a wife, mother of two, and working as a Neuropsychologist in Fairfield County, CT.  She has always been an avid exerciser, a generally healthy person, she vigilantly performs self-breast exams (actually on a daily basis) and goes regularly for mammograms and doctor visits.  Thus, no one was more shocked than she to return from a fabulous vacation with her family in August, 2015, and find out that she not only had breast cancer, but it was already fairly advanced to Stage 3C.  Her life took a rapid turn and she quickly found herself going through multiple surgeries, thrust into chemo, soon to be followed by radiation and more surgeries.  Her life has changed forever.  However, in the midst of this physical battle that has been waged, she also realized how much work desperately still needs to be done to find a cure for this awful disease that steals mothers, daughters, friends and sisters from us way too soon.  While awareness of breast cancer has increased, the actual death rates, shockingly, have not changed much in 20 years-going from about 43,000 deaths per year in 1991 to about 40,000 now.  We must do better.  More funding needs to go directly toward prevention (a vaccine) as well as toward research on how to cure metastatic breast cancer-this is what people die from.  Rebecca has already become an advocate in this field and is involved in legislation, fund-raising, awareness, and plans to continue her tireless efforts until there is a cure.  Please support me as I support her and follow her journey at:
