“Hope is What We All Need” Taking Giving Back to New Levels

Today is Metastatic Breast Cancer Awareness Day in New York as declared by NYS Governor Cuomo.  Every day, The Family Center provides comprehensive legal and social services to those living with cancer and their families.  However, we recognize that our supporters face cancer diagnoses too.  Today, we salute those living with metastatic breast cancer and their families.

Long-time Family Center supporter and volunteer Yvette S. Walker is one such courageous woman.  Recently, she spoke on NBC New York about living with metastatic breast cancer.  Today is Yvette’s birthday.  The Family Center wishes her a very happy birthday and thanks her for all that she is doing to bring awareness about metastatic breast cancer, demonstrating how to live a full and purposeful life in spite of her diagnosis while also giving hope to others.  Thank you Yvette for your courageousness and determination.  The Family Center thanks you for being a part of our family and wishes you many more happy birthdays.  Please click the link to watch her powerful message for those living with this type of cancer.

Watch Yvette talk to NBC 4 New York’s Lynda Baquero about Metastatic Breast Cancer.
