Taking Action Against Breast Cancer

Linda Hurtado: Taking Action



I always knew I had a high risk of getting breast cancer. It runs in my family. And my mother’s battle with the disease tattooed a raw fear in me.

My daughters signing the wall at an American Cancer Society event in honor of a grandmother they never got the chance to meet.
