Melanie McNamara received support from not only family members and friends when she was diagnosed with triple negative breast cancer in April of 2016, but from a local ZONTA group who put together pillows of comfort for her to help her in her battle.

Today, she is proud to say she has won the fight against breast cancer and hopes to encourage others who may be going through the same battle.

Melanie now mentors other women and educates them on the many forms of breast cancer while offering different solutions to keep them comfortable.

She is afraid that there is a possibility that the cancer may return which is why she wants to continue in the search for a cure and provide as much assistance as she can to the local group and organizations that helped her in her battle.
