Michelle encourages you to stay inspired through all of life’s challenges. In 2014 she was diagnosed with stage 1 breast cancer. She had a lumpectomy and radiation treatment. She celebrated 5 years cancer free and went to her annual mammography screening and found out the cancer had returned. In December of 2019 she had a mastectomy and began chemotherapy treatment. The Covid-19 pandemic interrupted her treatment but, she was able to pivot and began oral chemotherapy at home. She proudly rang the end of Chemo bell from home in August of 2021.

Through this journey she has been passionate about breast cancer awareness & prevention. She is the co-founder of Circle of Champions: Celebrating Survivor events. She shares her mission is to Encourage, Support, and Inspire women worldwide. She speaks about breast cancer awareness at Alpha Phi Alpha senior citizen center, The Temple of Restoration Breast Cancer night of prayer event, and is a featured survivor on dectogether.org website.
