Meet Tiffany Ríos-Fuller, Ph.D., Breast Cancer Researcher at NYU Langone / Perlmutter Cancer Center and American Cancer Society Fellow. Hers marks the final installment of our American Cancer Society #WalkWithPurpose content partnership series.
When we started this project with ACS last year, our intention was to put a spotlight on the cancer community to hear their stories and what it means to them to walk with purpose. We shared stories from survivors, doctors, ACS staff and researchers. Through them we better understand the vital work that ACS does across multiple disciplines to free the world from cancer.
As we got to know Tiffany we were incredibly moved by her personal story of growing up in a tight-knit family surrounded by strong women—including five sisters and a beloved mother who passed away when she was a teenager. Her mother was a teacher and her father a Pastor who imbued the ideals of service and helping others into their daughters. Tiffany has done just that.
There are eight women in Tiffany’s lab and most of them are researching cures for breast cancer. They are literally women healing women. We thought it was the perfect story to share this March Women’s History Month.
We hope you are as inspired by the ACS stories as we are. The through line of their stories is loss and hope: loss of health, loss of loved ones, loss of the life they had initially imagined for themselves. And yet, each of them continues onward with hope for a better future. And most importantly, hope for a future free from cancer.
This campaign to raise awareness and support for the fight against cancer is made together with American Cancer Society®. RĒDEN is proud to support American Cancer Society® in their mission to free the world from cancer. ACS does not endorse any service or product.
