Cecy Morales, Breast Cancer survivor

Joe Cans Feature — Cecy Morales

Cecy was diagnosed with breast cancer at the age of 26.

Because of her young age, the doctors advised her to simply come back when she was 40.

Due to her persistence at being screened it was discovered that she had Stage 0 (DCIS) breast cancer.

It was in part Cecy’s strong survivor spirit along with the challenges that she faced in accessing breast health care services that inspired Zionna Hanson to create Barbells for Boobs as a proactive voice and supportive resource in the fight against breast cancer.

Thanks Cecy, for being one helluva fighter and an inspiration to women everywhere, no matter their age.
