Melissa was thrilled to be on the field today at Soldier Field as our VIP guest at the @chicagobears
game. Her husband and kids joined her for this special day. Melissa participated in the ceremonial #BearDown
flag unfurling on the field before the game. Her journey has been difficult, but she’s grateful to have caught her cancer early. In January of 2018, she had her first mammogram and was diagnosed with breast cancer. The cancer had spread throughout her entire left breast, so she and her care team made the decision to schedule a mastectomy for May. She’s faced setbacks – including an infection that landed her a 10-day stay in the hospital, but today she is doing well and is trying to be healthy and live her best life. You inspire us, Melissa!
