Martha lives in Illinois and was diagnosed with metastatic breast cancer in January 2015. She has a husband and their three children ranged in age from 12 to 18 at her diagnosis. She is involved in patient support/outreach and with research advocacy, including two team projects presented at international cancer conferences. Martha is an accomplished author and believes there are really only two things that need to be said to someone with cancer: “I’m here” and “I love you.”
