Remembering April Doyle

We are incredibly heartbroken to share that AdvancedBreastCancer.net team member, April Doyle, passed away on Saturday, September 12th, 2020. April was first diagnosed with stage 4 metastatic breast cancer in 2014. We are thinking of all of her loved ones, especially her nine-year-old son, Colin. Her story, positive attitude, humor, and fierceness will be remembered and missed by all who knew her.

A dedicated advocate

April was involved in advocacy work since she was diagnosed with metastatic breast cancer. April was a dedicated writer and contributor to her own blog The C(ancer) Life as well as our community, AdvancedBreastCancer.net.
