Here is an excerpt from Sara as written on the WePay donation page:
Surrender to whatever it takes, even twice. Life is about survival. What does that mean? Here I am, 28 years old, with aggressive breast cancer and given less than 50% chance of survival. Best shape of my life; a firefighter; a gym owner. Breast cancer – not a death sentence! My second chance at life, OK lets fight. “WHATEVER IT TAKES” … COURAGE! Bi-lateral mastectomy, 6 months of chemo, 9 reconstructive surgeries. 4 years cancer free. Almost to 5…the magic number. Recurrence, 33 years old! My worst fear becomes reality. Fight again.
