CARRIE LITTLEWOOD BREAST CANCER SURVIVOR & MOTHER

Carrie Littlewood was 35 in 2017 and had estrogen positive, progesterone positive and HER2+ invasive ductal carcinoma of the breast. She had chemo, antibody therapy, radiation therapy, a bilateral mastectomy and is currently on endocrine therapy. She shared her story with grace and compassion for those who have walked or will walk in her shoes. Her story is one to empower others to live in the present with confidence and with comfort that you are not alone. Our conversation ended with this advice, "You need to be and stay present."
