Jennifer Gardner - June 2016
Just last October, Erin Magee was diagnosed with Stage 4 colon cancer, but today she's working her way to remission status. As she stops wearing wigs and scarves, and refers to her new pixie cut as her "last step" Magee is ready for what comes next. As the daughter of two cancer survivors, Magee had always had a feeling she would be diagnosed at some point, but at 48 she was surprised.
Magee reflected on her mothers resilience during her battle 9 years ago, and that helped her to get through her own hardest times. Magee states, "I'm kind of a tough gal...you do what you have to survive." Throughout her battle she pledged if she survived, she would be an advocate for cancer survivors. And survive she did.
