Marjorie Miller, a two-time cancer survivor, volunteers and speaks about her personal experience to raise awareness for cancer survivors.

Marjorie Miller is a writer and editor for Penn State’s College of Health and Human Development. A two-time cancer survivor, she was diagnosed with Leukemia at the age of 12 and with breast cancer at 26. Through genetic testing, she discovered she has Li Fraumeni Syndrome, a mutation that increases her chance of getting cancers.

Now in her 30s, Miller has gone through chemotherapy, a double mastectomy, breast reconstruction surgeries and lives a healthy lifestyle while coping with the long lasting effects of her cancers. She volunteers and speaks about her personal experience to raise awareness for cancer survivors.

This year’s National Cancer Survivors Day is Sunday, June 2.
