Remembering Emily Garnett
We are incredibly heartbroken to share that AdvancedBreastCancer.net team member, Emily Garnett, passed away on Sunday, March 29th, 2020. Emily had been living with stage IV metastatic breast cancer for 28 months. We are thinking of all of her loved ones, especially her husband, Christian, and their son, Felix. Emily will be remembered and missed by all who knew her. Her story touched so many, she was a fierce champion in the metastatic breast cancer community.
A dedicated advocate
Emily relentlessly advocated for metastatic breast cancer in many ways and shared so much of her journey with the community. After her diagnosis, she started the Beyond the Pink Ribbon blog to share the realities of living with MBC. In addition to documenting the impact MBC has had on her life, she also hosted a podcast called The Intersection of Cancer and Life. Some of her writing can be found at the below links; a full list of her articles can be found below.
