EPISODE 50: Laughing, Learning, and Living Through Breast Cancer (and Hurricane Ida)

Breast cancer is the second most common cancer among women. In fact, according to breastcancer.org, 1 in 8 women in the United States will develop breast cancer over the course of their lifetime. As a female business owner, what would you do if you discovered you were on the adverse side of this staggering statistic? In recognition of Breast Cancer Awareness month, this conversation centers on a real-life, double mastectomy survivor whose optimistic approach to the ‘Big C’ is nothing less than inspirational.

In this episode of the P.O.W.E.R. Plug Podcast Host, Mary Foley speaks with mom and business owner Ann Herren. Ann is the publisher of the print and online versions of NOLA Family and NOLA Boomers magazines. During the Christmas season of 2020, a routine mammogram alerted Ann that she had developed breast cancer. Ann bravely shares what she has learned during her cancer journey, how humor helps her put things into perspective and words of wisdom for the P.O.W.E.R community.

Note: This episode was recorded just a few days prior to Hurricane Ida coming to town. We hope Ann’s story is a dose of inspiration for those who are recovering.
