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.
