In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, today’s episode highlights Rachel Silver-Cohen’s special friend and real-life superhero, Stephanie Robin. Stephanie meets the gals on the corner of Audacity & Advice to share her courageous story; first battling Stage II Breast Cancer and then having to tackle a Stage IV diagnosis after her cancer metastasized to both lungs. Initially under the pristine care of Dr. Louise Morrell, Medical Oncology Specialist in Boca Raton, Florida she quickly learned the necessity of knowing family history as it relates to the BRCA1 & BRCA2 genes and the risks associated with these mutations. Subsequently, Dr. Mark E. Robson, Associate Attending Physician of the Clinical Genetics & Breast Medicine Service in the Department of Medicine at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York City invited Stephanie to join his clinical trial. Fourteen years later, Stephanie is N.E.D. “No Evidence of Disease!” To this day, Stephanie maintains her mantra, “Pink Is Not Just A Color, It’s An Attitude.” As creator and founder of Think Pink Rocks, a non-profit organization whose mission is to raise awareness about early detection of and genetic testing for breast cancer and to provide funding for screening, treatment and research, Stephanie is a Survivor, a Warrior and a Real Life Superhero who continues to advocate for awareness helping both men and women in an effort to save lives. She not only walks the walk daily, but today she candidly talks the talk about her personal journey and what life feels like beyond beating Metastatic Breast Cancer. If you’re looking to hear a success story, this is an episode you won’t want to miss!
