A Podcast on Tina's Breast Cancer Journey, a "Girlfriend's Guide" to Breast Cancer.

Tina's story must be told.  She has lived the breast cancer journey both as the survivor and the daughter of one.  Tina knows both sides of the story.  She has been the ears that have heard, the eyes that have watched, and the hand holder.  She too has been the body that has been sick, weak, and worn.  Her soul has come forward with unyielding optimism about her own future and that of her fellow survivors.  Through her experiences, those affected by breast cancer will find inspiration that they too can hope for a promising future that will wipe away the pain of the past, replacing it with joy and gratitude.  Sit back and listen in to her inspirational Podcast debut, DJ Breast Cancer.

Leaving a Legacy

How do you honor a friend that passed away from breast cancer? Francine Schubert passed away from breast cancer in 2002 and her friends decided to honor her memory by helping others.

The goal of Francine‘s Friends is to establish a mobile mammography unit to serve every woman in Allen county and the surrounding area who might otherwise not receive a screening mammogram and follow-up care was reached late in 2005 when Francine’s Friends mobile mammography was launched.

My podcast guest this week is Marita Dwight-Smith, Executive Director for Francine’s Friends. She has an extensive background of mammography and uses her expertise and technical skills in conjunction of helping others. We met for lunch one day and I knew we were destined to work together. Marita is dedicated to helping others get early detection, assisting those that may not be able to afford a mammogram, and making it convenient for women to get a mammogram. Her team is kind and empathetic, knowledgeable and convenient for women in Allen County (Northeast Indiana).
