CONQUER Cam: A Spotlight on Janet Maker

Janet Maker, breast cancer survivor and author of The Thinking Woman’s Guide to Breast Cancer, emphasizes the importance of support. Diagnosed in 2011, Janet shared this news with her family and friends, and told them to spread the word. Her initial goal was that she would have fewer people to tell. What came of it was a surge of overwhelming support from individuals whose lives are touched by cancer, one way or another. Listen to Janet tell her story on CONQUER Cam.
