2021 Paint Gwinnett Pink 5K Walk/Run

Catina Strong

My name is Catina and I will be turning 30 in September. I had my first baby on April 10th 2021. The day after I told my doctor about a lump that I found in my right breast. Then just 9 days later, I was officially diagnosed with stage 3A Invasive Ductal Carcinoma. Within a month I had my port placed and started chemo. I have 16 rounds of chemo and then surgery. 

I have a lot of faith that keeps me pretty positive. I also have an amazing husband, family, and friends that support me. My little girl definitely keeps me going especially on those tough days.
