Connie is vibrant, loving, compassionate, tough and inspiring. She's a mother of two beautiful boys. She's 35 years old. And she's dying of Breast Cancer.
This is her third battle with cancer. At the age 11 Connie, with the help of early detection and chemotherapy, fought off a very rare and aggressive bone tumour in her leg. At 22, she overcame a tumour in her womb, again with the help of early detection and treatment.
This time Connie has Breast Cancer. It has spread to her lungs, liver, pelvis, spine and knee. This time it's terminal and she has a life expectancy of 6-12 months.
Nothing can prepare you for to say goodbye to your kids at such a young age. That's why Connie is hard at work to raise Breast Cancer awareness. Early detection is the key to survival and Connie wants everyone to know it.
