"Meeting Adversity with strength"-Kim Bollo's Story

Update #1  •   Posted 283 day(s) ago

In 2005 Kim Bollo age 35, (wife to Steven and Mother to 3 year old Mario and pregnant with her second child Gianluca) discovered a lump in her breast during her third trimester.    She was diagnosed with aggressive HER2-positive cancer.  Two months after giving birth she had a double masectomy.  This would be the first of three surgeries in two and half years.  

Chemotherapy was difficult for Kim causing her to feel lethargic.  In order to stay positive and get through this tough period in her life she exercised daily, ate healthy,  and drank lots of water to stay hydrated.

Kim Recognized the importance of a healthy and positive mind set. She fought negative thoughts and feelings and became her own advocate doing whatever made her feel good and positive.

Today Kim is a stronger person and a better wife and mother due to her diagnosis.  

Kim is a survivor of breast cancer.
