2013 Leukemia & Lymphoma Society Woman of the Year, Michigan Chapter

October 2014 to the current I have been between Michigan and Arizona.

May 22, 2016, I was a cast member of A 2nd Act: Survivorship Takes The Stage, Inaugural Phoenix Production at the Mesa Arts Center in Mesa, Arizona. 10 stories of woman cancer survivors and how they started their 2nd Act after their initial cancer journey. Each story is on YouTube in “A 2nd Act: Survivorship Takes the Stage” channel. Check out the videos of each cast member by name. Judy Pearson is the founder of A2ndAct.org
All of the stories were awesome!

My oldest son, Eddie Battle Jr., made his transition November 25, 2016. Our memories keep me close to him.

Hello everyone,

Currently I am in Arizona and six of my family members came to visit. I am enjoying myself.

In addition, most of you may know I am a survivor of a rare cancer, multiple myeloma. Of course being who I am, I serve as a myeloma ambassador with my son, bringing awareness and encouragement to others.

Andrea Watson, from the Chicago Defender, interviewed my son, Steve (my primary caregiver) and me earlier this month. If you like you can view the article by putting “Women Says Even with Cancer, Life Can Still be Satisfying” in the Google search engine.

My fellow Class of 1967, enjoy life, your family, and friends.

I am thankful for my Cass Tech schooling and the opportunity to interact with each of you.

Brenda
