    Kari's Story: The Importance of Vigilance

    After completing treatment for Hodgkin lymphoma in 1996, Kari's life was typical of many busy professionals: raising a family and working hard. Then, in 2007, she enrolled in a secondary cancers study sponsored by Dana-Farber's Adult Survivorship Program, a member of the LIVESTRONG Center of Excellence Network, where tests revealed that she had breast cancer. Kari decided to share her story to help other cancer survivors understand the importance of vigilance and screening.
