ICE Newsroom - October 2015
On July 14, 2014, everything changed for Linda Phillips, 42-year old single mother and Homeland Security Investigations special agent. On her way to work at the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) Dallas field office, she received a call from her doctor notifying her she had been diagnosed with invasive ductal carcinoma.
Phillips' mother had lost a battle with breast cancer at the age of 48, and at 42 Phillips feared a similar fate. Focusing on her faith and a positive attitude, Phillips completed 12 weeks of chemotherapy and eight weeks of radiation. Phillips returned to work in January 2015 to, in her words, "get back to normalcy".
Many in her office were inspired by Phillips' positive attitude. Phillips' colleague, special agent Katrina Berger stated "Linda's courage in the face of devastating medical challenges has been inspiring to me personally and everyone she works with".
