A creative way to promote breast cancer awareness

New Jersey native and breast cancer survivor Kathy Rozanski recently got an unforgettable experience after she was able to take a ride on the Horizon Blue Cross Blue Shield of New Jersey Blimp.

Rozanaski got to be a part of this once-in-a-lifetime trip after she was selected as a part of the "Screen For Life" campaign sponsored by the Susan G. Komen Foundation as a way to further spread breast cancer awareness.

Rozanski was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2008 and has been cancer-free for three years after undergoing a double mastectomy, reconstructive surgery and 20 weeks of chemotherapy.

She brought her 14-year-old son Michael along for the ride because she said he was her rock throughout the whole ordeal.

As one in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer, Rozanski said as a survivor its now her turn to give back.

"I want people to see that you can work through it and be a survivor," Rozanski told the news source. "I was determined to live a normal life. I always said I wasn’t going to let cancer get me, I was going to get it. I didn’t keep it private, I wore it on my sleeve to show that you can survive and have a normal life."
