My name is Donna and I am a breast cancer survivor. But my journey with cancer began long before my own diagnosis in March of 2009. It actually started in 2005 when my husband Peter was diagnosed with cancer of the esophagus. Although I lost Peter in July 2009, I will never forget the role that CancerCare played in bringing comfort and support to both of us.
