Tina was diagnosed in August 2015 with Stage 4 HER2+,estrogen+ and progesterone+ breast cancer. She only found her breast cancer as she was booked to have a breast reduction, and has since undergone 8 months of chemotherapy, and continues to attend classes at Wellspring Niagara that help with her anxiety and mental health.

Tina works in the hospital as a laboratory technician and has been off work since her diagnosis. She is eternally thankful to The Pink Wig Foundation and its donors in helping her through this trying time, and is hoping raise cancer awareness and offer support in her hometown.
