2016 Survivor Celebration: Survivor Calls Her Family The “True Heroes”

Candice McGinnis is a two and a half year breast cancer survivor, but she could not have done it without the support of her family.

Six months after her third child was born, McGinnis was diagnosed with breast cancer. With her family by her side, McGinnis made it through a double mastectomy, 12 rounds of chemo and three reconstructive surgeries.

McGinnis calls her family the true heroes of her story. Her husband, despite traveling frequently for work, managed to keep McGinnis feeling positive. Her children helped by keeping her on her feet and reminding her through their smiles that losing was not an option. Her 86-year-old grandmother even did her part by driving McGinnis to her treatments and never leaving her side.

As a two and a half year survivor, McGinnis says that she will not let anything come in her way of living a long and healthy life.

Let’s celebrate Candice McGinnis!
