Pink Abtober Story Spotlight: Melissa Howard
October 9, 2016
For the entire month of October, Burn Boot Camp is thinking pink. We are honoring survivors and fighting for a cure by posting positive messages and sharing stories.
Melissa Howard, a member at Burn Boot Camp Harrisburg, is sharing her Breast Cancer story. Her mission is to empower and inspire women like her!
Melissa was diagnosed with breast cancer at the age of 27. The diagnosis came as a shock because Breast Cancer did not run in her family.
In 2007, Melissa had a Lumpectomy which helped her ability to have children. Finally, after five years of treatment and hormone therapy, she and her husband were able to have a little girl.
Additionally, Melissa decided to join Burn Boot Camp last May after her fight with Breast Cancer. Not to mention, Melissa feels excitement to go to the gym now!
Melissa finishes her segment with these words: “I’m praying for you. Don’t be afraid to give up the fight. In addition, find a way to join the community like Burn.”
Positive women empower other women! Stay tuned in to Burn TV for more amazing stories this month.
