Welcome to Dawn Canzano's Page

Dawn Canzano 

Hi I’m Dawn Canzano. Like many of you, I’m a wife, a daughter, a sister, an aunt; and, a momma to a doggie rescue, Diego. I enjoy hanging out with family and friends. I like staying active. I’m an adventurer. I’m curious. I ask a lot of questions. I’m a liberal citizen of the world, a discusser of politics and a music lover. I am strong. I’m also a survivor. A survivor of breast cancer.
In 2010, at the age of 36 and just a few weeks shy of celebrating my 1 year wedding anniversary, I was diagnosed with an aggressive form of breast cancer. Stage III. I underwent 12 rounds of chemo, a bilateral mastectomy, reconstruction (later losing an implant due to infection), 6 weeks of daily radiation, followed by 1 year of Herceptin injections. I was NED “no evidence of disease,” for about 2 years before the cancer returned and metasticized in 2013. Now my daily reality is living with stage IV metastatic breast cancer.
This year, I had the goal of finding an opportunity to bring more awareness to my situation and that of millions of women, men and children who are diagnosed with cancer each year. I found it!
I’m excited to be riding in the Young Survivor Coaltion Tour de Pink this fall. It’s a 200 mile (for you Euros, that’s about 322 kilometers or nearly the length of Belgium) ride over the course of 3 days between Santa Barbara & Santa Monica, California. I am asking for your support in this endeavor-any contributions small or large would be most spectacular. All money I raise will go directly to support the Young Survivor Coalition “YSC.” The YSC is the premier organization dedicated to the critical issues unique to young women who are diagnosed with breast cancer. For more info, check out ysctourdepink.org.
I’m riding for my friends who can not. Jody, Mark, JJ, Joanna, Karen and Ellen.
AND, a special shout out to my amazing team of doctors and nurses from UCSF and Sloan Kettering.
