Volunteer Spotlight: DeAnna Williams

DeAnna Williams
It all began in March, 2005. DeAnna had an itch on her right breast and felt a lump. She compared it to her left breast and became concerned.

A mammogram determined the need to see a specialist. A biopsy showed #breastcancer and DeAnna was immediately scheduled to have the lump removed in May. She needed to schedule chemotherapy and radiation, but postponed it until after her daughter’s graduation. She did not want to take a chance on side effects making her miss this special day.

When DeAnna found out she was to be a grandmother, she knew she had to see her first grandchild. That motivated her to complete my treatments and keep a detailed scrapbook of her healing process.

DeAnna says ”Eight years later, I am still here and have two granddaughters, ages 5 and 7. I am a survivor!”
