Ms. Gloria Weston-Smart (survivor of 5 years) was diagnosed with breast cancer in September of 2012. She immediately decided to do a bilateral with no reconstruction. She started chemotherapy in November of 2012, and the last treatment was in March of 2013. Ms. Weston-Smart worked while undergoing treatment. Overtime reports and blood-work resulted normal. She celebrates 3 years being cancer-free in March 2016.
How did you get involved with WCGCC/Paint the Town Pink- what was your role? I have been knowing Cheryl Johnson (Director of West Central Cancer Coalition) for time since working with her at Girl Scouts. I participated with the Paint the Town Pink fundraiser in 2012. I became a board committee member in 2013, followed by the co-chair of the Butterfly Release fundraiser.
Special interests, what do you enjoy doing in your spare time? I enjoy reading, walking, and the company of my great nieces and nephews. I have love for all people. Along with Reverend Dr. J. H. Flakes III, I started a cancer ministry at the 4th ST. Missionary Baptist Church. I’m currently planning for the ‘Relay for Lie’.
One word that describes West Central Georgia Cancer Coalition? One word that describes the coalition would be (support). I really enjoy and support that all the proceeds contributed to West Central Georgia Cancer Coalition assist the community with financial burdens concerning cancer. I’m glad to be a part of this organization knowing that we are able to the ones who may not have that support.
