It Was More than a Rash: It was Breast Cancer

She feels she can still make a difference

In the last year since going public with her story, Cordts’s journey with breast cancer has been shared around the globe. Since then, WFAA, the TV station that broadcasted her story, gave an astonishing $15,000 to cancer research after her interview. “You know, I suspect this money won’t save my life but I am at peace knowing it’s going to save somebody else’s,” said Cordts. She admitted to feeling silenced for so many months as if no one could hear her begs and pleads for the disease that she had. “I feel like WFAA listened and heard and shared and now have donated toward research. I feel like together collectively we are making a difference,” she said.
