Knock Out

Brittany Fleming, 34, Baltimore, Maryland - “My journey with breast cancer was different than what I expected. Upon being diagnosed, I felt hopeless as many people often feel. However, when I discussed my situation with my oncologist and he revealed the latest treatment opportunities available to me, which included Perjeta and Herceptin, I felt confident that I had a bright future ahead of me. Throughout the treatment process, my belief that I would return to normal rarely wavered. After completing my treatment — which included chemotherapy, surgery and radiation — my life slowly returned back to normal, and I created a tutoring program for kids. Surviving breast cancer taught me that true strength doesn't come from what you can do, it comes from overcoming the things you once thought you couldn't overcome.”  (Photo: Courtesy of Brittany Fleming)
