Olympic Gymnast Shannon Miller

Hi there! Long time no read! I apologize for my long silence but want you to know I’m newly inspired and ready to roll! Be looking for posts from the women in the Community Breast Health Navigator and Cancer Support Program I’ve been a part of over the last year, as well as information that will help you or the women you know make the right health decisions. Good, current information plus the right doctors can mean the difference between dying, surviving or thriving! More on that in later posts!

Recently I received this email from a reader. I appreciated her taking the time to share this link to an article with me. I thought you’d enjoy reading the article about Shannon Miller’s victory over ovarian cancer as well. Feel free to pass it along!

. . . I came across your blog and . . . I was wondering if you would help me to spread the word about the silent killer. The Mesothelioma Cancer Alliance did an interview with former Olympic gymnast, Shannon Miller, on her recent battle with ovarian cancer. With the Olympics underway, I think this is the perfect opportunity to shed some light and increase awareness of this disease. I was wondering if you’d be willing to post a link to the interview:http://www.mesothelioma.com/blog/authors/staff/from-olympic-gold-to-ovarian-cancer-our-interview-with-former-us-gymnast-shannon-miller.htm

Let me know if you decide to post it! I think we can really shed some light on ovarian cancer with this being so current!


Thank you, Heather, for sharing this article. Hopefully it will help raise more awareness, funding, and a cure!
