Breast Cancer – Virginia (Ginny) Bevins

What type of breast cancer did you have?


When were you diagnosed, year and age?

2003 and age 68

How did you feel when you were first diagnosed?

I got a problem, what do we do about it?

What did you learn about yourself while going through your breast cancer experience?

Life goes on. I kept working (at BOCES) and doing every day things.

Any other insight you want to share?

Don’t let it define you! Just be the person you were, don’t be “that cancer lady”. Be kind to everyone!
