Cynthia Carrasco, BABC Nurse, enjoying a sunny day under a patio umbrella in 2009.Cynthia was passionate about helping other women know more about breast cancer; how to to a self check, that if you have concerns and questions, you diserve answers; it’s your body, your life. She felt it was so important to share her knowledge and experience with others. We are thankful to have known and worked with such a wonderful, giving and compassionate lady.

  • Cynthia fought breast cancer and won.
  • She fought skin cancer and won.
  • She went through chemo and radiation for lung cancer in 2012.
  • Even while fighting cancer, Cynthia was willing to help Bands Against Breast Cancer with our training classes. She had the knowledge, and the experience, and she’d been there.
