Ann Camden uses her 25 years of experience as a public relations executive to help raise her voice and those of others for the metastatic breast cancer community through blogging, speaking, and publishing her work on other platforms.
Ann is on the Patient Advocacy Board of the Lobular Breast Cancer Association, cohosts a Hope at Home MBC room for Inheritance of Hope, and helps manage the NC Casting for Recovery fishing retreats. She was diagnosed in 2009 with ductal cancer and in 2016 with a second primary metastatic lobular cancer diagnosis. She has been in active treatment ever since and is currently fighting leptomeningeal disease as well. She publishes her blog down-not-out.com on a monthly basis.
Married to a fellow Boilermaker, Ann and her husband have twin 18-year-old daughters, who are seniors in high school and keep her both inspired and exasperated. They live in Raleigh, NC.
