Elisa Robson a wife, mother of three and a vice president for a large food service company, lost her sister to breast cancer. She has been diligent about getting her annual mammogram.

After learning about her diagnosis, she adopted a healthier lifestyle, embracing a wellness program which resulted in her losing 65 pounds. She was vocal about her cancer story as a way to help others who are going through the same experience. “My perspective has changed. I have stopped putting things off and saving them for that special day. Today is that special day,” Elisa advises.
