You’ll be helping people like Trish…

In August of 2015, 46-years-old Trish was diagnosed with an aggressive breast cancer. It was news that changed her life forever.

“My first round of chemotherapy was very hard, and I wanted to give up after that. I didn’t believe I was strong enough,” she said.

Trish considers herself one of the lucky ones. After 11 rounds of chemotherapy, where she lost all feeling in her hands and feet, she was cured.

“I was fortunate that my cancer was one of the ‘nicer’ ones and I had targeted therapy available to me. Thanks to incredible researchers we have access to brilliant treatments which are targeting the many different forms of breast cancer, but we still need more.”

Trish is back this year as a Longest Table host, determined to see research continue to save lives from cancer. Join her in the fight!
