Northern Soft & Strong Champ
Georgia-Pacific and Susan G. Komen for the Cure have
teamed up to celebrate individuals who volunteer their time to support the
Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure. This year’s Southeast Wisconsin Komen
Affiliate’s Quilted Northern Soft & Strong Champ is Minerva Cornejo.
With a family history of breast cancer, Minerva had
her first mammogram at age 37. Less than a year later, she had a gut feeling
that it was time for another. The results were abnormal and a biopsy showed a
high risk ductile carcinoma on most of her left breast. Further testing showed
that Minerva carried the BRCA 2 cancer gene. It was recommended she have a
bilateral mastectomy and hysterectomy as soon as possible.
Minerva underwent bilateral mastectomy with breast
reconstruction in July 2011. After 6
surgeries within one year, Minerva is now a 39-year-old cancer survivor. She
volunteers her time to share her inspirational story with the Susan G. Komen
Conversations for the Cure program, with hopes that women will realize the
importance of annual mammograms and early detection– the things that saved her
