Bernie was a truly inspirational woman who became a part of the Breakthrough family after her first breast cancer diagnosis in 2010. We were devastated to hear that her breast cancer had returned in 2012.
Her spirit and determination to try and fight the disease spurred us all on and will continue to do so. Our thoughts are with Bernie's husband, daughter, family and friends at this time.
This is a reminder of the devastating effect breast cancer can have and the need for more to be done to beat this disease.
