Breast Cancer Advocates Partner to Lighten and Brighten Patients' Journey

Cancer met its match – Abby Match, that is. After being diagnosed with triple-negative breast cancer at 35, Abby faced cancer with a positive attitude to beat it after eight rounds of chemotherapy, surgery and radiation at Redeemer Health in partnership with MD Anderson Cancer Center at Cooper.

Now a thriver, Abby is part of Living Beyond Breast Cancer’s (LBBC) Young Advocate Program. LBBC is a national nonprofit organization seeking to create a world that provides trusted information and community support and resources to breast cancer patients. As a Young Advocate, Abby helps women diagnosed with breast cancer before the age of 45 understand the disease, provides peer support, and directs peers to much-needed services. Additionally, she connects others to LBBC through grassroots outreach within her community and helps raise awareness to make a difference.

Abby joined forces with LBBC and Stella & Dot – a boutique-style accessories company offering flexible entrepreneurship for women – to generously donate nearly 150 “pouf” gift bags for Redeemer Health in partnership with MD Anderson at Cooper breast cancer patients. The Stella & Dot gift bags include items such as bandannas, Kind bars, socks, teas, and an information card directing patients to peer support programs and helpline resources.

This generous donation surely brought a smile to our patients’ faces as they navigate their way through breast cancer treatment.

“This journey I’m on is not where I saw my life going, but I’m going to make something of it,” says Abby. “I’m going to make pink lemonade out of all the lemons. And that’s the best thing I can take from this experience.”

Redeemer Health’s partnership with Abby, LBBC, and Stella & Dot is one of the many ways Redeemer Health works toward its mission to Care, Comfort, and Heal.
