When Andrea Saldana was diagnosed with stage 3 breast cancer at the age of 40, she knew she was about to face the fight of her life. But what she did next is truly remarkable.
“I was diagnosed in April of 2022,” says Andrea. “I have worked in healthcare all my life, and I knew something was wrong with my body. The diagnosis didn’t surprise me, but how much treatment I would need did. I just kept wondering how I was going to get through.”
Facing chemotherapy, a mastectomy and radiation, Andrea knew she would have to take time off work.
