Women Donate Thousands of Ounces of Breast Milk for Those Fighting Breast Cancer

Yet another way to prevent cancer from winning

Holscher received approval from her daughter’s pediatrician to use the donated breast milk and she stressed that just knowing she had a supply close by was a big relief. “It made me feel like cancer isn’t winning completely and the donor milk has alleviated financial stress because I don’t have to think about how I am going to pay for formula and my medical bills at the same time,” she said. Thanks to Brehm heartening efforts, Genevieve is a happy, healthy, and growing baby. “When I was diagnosed, I decided I could either let cancer win and go down a depressing path or I could choose happy. I just decided that I was not going to let cancer win and take life away from me,” said Holscher.
