Breast Cancer Survivor Discovers “Family of Women” at Annual Symposium

Dec. 18, 2009 – When she was diagnosed with breast cancer at a young age, Tamiko Smith was scared and unsure of what lay ahead. She found support and “overwhelming love” by participating in the Young Women’s Breast Cancer Symposium presented each year by Siteman Cancer Center’s Young Women’s Breast Cancer Program. “That was a life-changing experience,” she says. She believes every young woman dealing with breast cancer would benefit from participating in the symposium or other support programs.
