Discover Your Power With Oral Cancer Survivor Joana Breckner

By Lee Silverstein | 07/28/2020

Joana Breckner, an oral-cancer survivor and motivational speaker, joins Lee this week on the WE Have Cancer podcast. The pair talk about Joana’s battle with oral cancer and how the difficulties of her journey helped her discover her power.

After her dentist found some oral cancer symptoms during a routine checkup, Joana’s story truly began. Dealing with several major surgeries that included the loss of part of her tongue and some of her teeth, Joana had to learn how to eat and speak again.

Mission: Trip to Disney World

Jocelyn is a 9 year old from Bath, San Marcos, CA. Jocelyn’s journey began when her family took a vacation, but towards the end of the trip Jocelyn had developed a really bad cough.

Jocelyn was dealing with on and off fevers, and it was then when her mom made the decision to take her to the hospital to have her blood work done. They found out that she had a mass in her lungs that was pressing against her heart, and Jocelyn was later diagnosed with cell acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia.

Our mission is to raise $10,000 in the month of May to send Jocelyn and her family on a camping trip to the Dinosaur National Monument in Jensen, UT.

September 19, 2020
