Valerie Blackwell-Howard

Valerie Blackwell-Howard was diagnosed with stage II, triple-negative breast cancer in early 2018. After finishing treatment, Valerie’s sister urged her to attend an event she found online, the 2018 Living Beyond Breast Cancer Conference: Sharing Wisdom, Sharing Strength, which was supported by the Triple Negative Breast Cancer Foundation. Inspired by the connections she made with other women at the conference and the stories they shared, Valerie got involved as a patient advocate and in 2019 received the Courage Award from the Triple Negative Breast Cancer Foundation.
