Connect with Marissa


Marissa was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2015 at age 35. After participating in Living Beyond Breast Cancer’s Young Advocate Program, she was inspired to continue and deepen her involvement with the organization. She serves on LBBC’s Black Breast Cancer Advisory Council. As a board member, Marissa is committed to representing and helping women of color – navigating health care and life after cancer. She hopes to expand LBBC’s impact and reach more people in need of resources and guidance.
