Dr. Angela Patterson is a two-time breast cancer survivor. She was first diagnosed with stage IIB triple negative breast cancer in 2006 when she was 36 weeks pregnant.

She created the blog to chronicle that experience. She was diagnosed again in 2020 with hormone positive DCIS.

Inspired by survivorship, she returned to college 20 years after earning her bachelor's degree in accounting. She went on to earn a master’s degree in predictive analytics and a doctorate in business administration.

Angela is a wife, mother to a neurodiverse, transgender teen, dog mom, analyst, instructor, poet and writer. She has also discovered a passion for gardening.
