(THOUSAND OAKS, CA) Breast cancer doesn’t discriminate. Rich or poor. The girl next door or a world renowned celebrity. It knows no boundaries.
Just ask Joni Eareckson Tada, Founder & CEO of Joni and Friends, an international disability ministry. Injured in a diving accident at the age of 17 that left her a quadriplegic, Joni knows about overcoming life’s challenges. And as a breast cancer survivor, she has once again embraced a challenge by using it to help others find the strength to meet an adversity head-on and grow from it.
