Abby Dotterer - October 2017
Kathy Stoner recalls sitting at the front desk of her job at the Children's Advocacy Project when she received the call from her doctor, informing her that she was diagnosed with breast cancer. Shocked by the news, Stoner was in a state of disbelief but was prepared to continue living her life. Ten years later, Stoner finds herself at the desk of a new job, helping to calm the nerves of women awaiting mammograms at the Casper Medical Imaging and Outpatient Radiology office.
Stoner went through surgery, which was followed by three months of chemotherapy. During this time, to accommodate work, she scheduled her treatments on Fridays so she could manage the symptoms over the weekend without letting it affect her job.
Though the experience was by no mean easy, Stoner explains that the support she received from her family and loved ones truly got her through it. In regards to the disease, Stoner encourages others to "Take control. You can't let it get you, you have to get it."
