Nearly seven years ago, Susan Sellers was offered the position as president of St. Vincent’s Foundation. “The next day I was diagnosed with breast cancer,” she said.
As a patient who went through surgery and treatment, Sellers said she better understands those who face the disease and spends a lot of time in activities for survivors and patients currently undergoing treatment.
“These programs are important. Not only do they get great clinical care, but we try to make sure we’re nurturing the other parts of their being, physically, mentally and spiritually,” said Sellers, who was diagnosed after a mammogram.
