Sherry Anderson thanks God she is alive today, and she knows all too well just how dangerous breast cancer can be.
The Boiling Spring Lakes resident lost her sister, Elaine Hammonds, to breast cancer when Elaine was 40. She had been fighting the disease for about three years.
Anderson’s mom, Delores Barker, 74, was diagnosed with breast cancer in 1998 and now is fighting breast and lung cancer.
Anderson also has an aunt and a great aunt who were diagnosed with the disease.
