In 1997 at just 44 years old, Betty’s dreams were abruptly eclipsed by the cold, hard reality of a cancerous breast tumor with endless visits to oncologists and having to face her own mortality at a young age. Rather than give up and resign herself to fate, she decided to face her illness head on with a positive spirit, and with support from her family and her husband, she scaled through. Twenty years after she has been certified cancer free. In this interview with Konye chelsea nwabogor, she shares her story, key survival mechanisms and ends with some words of encouragement.
