Three months later she was diagnosed with advanced stage breast cancer. She was given a 60% chance to survive past five years.

"I've never looked back," says Becky.

Becky has been interviewed twice on a global Christian Radio program, global Christian satellite television and has appeared several times on AM Northwest (local Oregon program). She has been quoted in several books about breast cancer.

Komen/BMW North America "Local Hero" award, the 2009 national "Pink Power Mom" by Bright Starts, an award granted to eight women around the country for their work in supporting women with breast cancer.
