How to Survive Cancer Three Times and Still Have a Smile on Your Face
Donna Deegan is a super hero. She's been battling cancers since 1999 and instead of breaking down from the mental and physical stress, she's running marathons, helping other women pay their medical bills, and spreading awareness about the disease. Donna was first diagnosed with breast cancer in 1999 when she was a news anchor in Florida. She decided to keep a blog (yes, a blog in 1999!) to keep her viewers updated on her treatments and progress. She began receiving letters from people who were also fighting breast cancer but were having trouble making ends meet when it came to the incredible treatment bills. These people inspired her to create The Donna Foundation which used her public reputation to help find a solution to medical bills. "I hoped that by sharing my story, I would help other women become better advocates for themselves during their journeys with breast cancer." After fighting off the first bought of cancer with chemotherapy, Donna found out that her cancer was back again, and in 2008 she was told that it was back for a third time. All the while, Donna was still keeping up with the Donna Foundation to help women struggling with bills on top of a life threatening disease.
