I'm Not Average: CJ

Condition:
Breast Cancer


Age:
65


Location:
Annapolis, MD


CJ is a cancer survivor who wants to help others who have been diagnosed with cancer. #ImNotAverage


Within a year of retiring from the Air Force in 2003, C.J. was diagnosed with stage 2 breast cancer. Over the next 22 months she would undergo cancer treatment, be diagnosed with systemic lupus and, finally, metastatic breast cancer.

Living in remission today, C.J. defies expectations, thanks to modern medicine breakthroughs, her own hard work, and the same of her doctors.

“I’m certain I would not be alive if it wasn’t for modern medicine,” she says. “It’s important that every patient should get the chance to survive longer."
