Cancer has been a part of Annie Parker’s life for as long as she can remember. “My cancer journey started when I was actually in my mother’s womb because that’s when she found out she had breast cancer,” she says.
Parker was only 14 when her mother passed away from breast cancer. In the decade that followed, she lost her sister and her first-cousin to the same disease and began to see a pattern. She became convinced that she was next.
“In my heart and my gut, I just knew that this had to be put down to more than bad luck,” she says.
