Shira was diagnosed with DCIS in October of 2020 during a routine mammogram. She is open to all forms of advocacy, with a particular focus on the importance of mammograms as a tool for early diagnosis.
Shira is a wife and mother to two children, aged nine and six. She has worked in event planning and marketing for over 20 years. Whenever she carves out some free time, Shira likes to bake, travel, garden, and get outdoors.
Since my diagnosis I like to say that I don't need you to wear pink to show support: Just make sure you are getting your mammograms.
