Bobbi’s story: Elevating Black health | BeACTive

Facing a breast cancer diagnosis, Bobbi discovered new ways to exercise and advocate for the Black community. Through sweat and support, she breaks barriers.


Transforming challenges into advocacy and education

Following a diagnosis of early-stage hormone receptor-positive breast cancer in 2013, Bobbi's journey with breast cancer has become a powerful source of advocacy and education for herself and others. Bobbi experienced side effects from medication, such as weight gain, which made pursuing healthy choices a struggle. However, she’s remained committed to understanding her condition and advocating for herself. Bobbi doesn’t stop there, though. She shares her knowledge with family, friends, and the community to empower them with resources and support.
