Girl Power Alliance Guest: Shelley Strong
Shelley Strong is a breast cancer survivor. She was diagnosed in the summer of 2019 at 29 years old. The diagnosis was a shock because she had dedicated her life to health and fitness. She found the lump herself but because of her age, good health, and lack of family history of cancer, doctors did not offer her an immediate biopsy.
She had to be her own advocate and fight for surgery, which thankfully she got 2 months later. Her treatment consisted of 16 rounds of chemo, 20 radiation sessions, and 3 surgeries. She is happy to say that as of August 2020, she is celebrating 6 months of remission/NED (no evidence of disease.)
Since her diagnosis, she has dedicated her Instagram platform to spread awareness about breast cancer and have openly shared her story to give others hope.
