Camille McCracken was first diagnosed with breast cancer in 2007, and had gone into remission after several months of intense chemotherapy. But a little more than a year later, the cancer returned and she was told that it was more aggressive this time. However, today McCracken is cancer free and celebrating her life, The Florida Times-Union
Recently, McCracken, 24, thought she was speaking to other cancer survivors at an event, but was surprised to find out that she was actually being granted a day where she could live out her dreams.
Through the work of two organizations, Experience Genie and Smart Box, she was granted her wishes and spent a day enjoying being treated like a celebrity.
McCracken was chauffeured around in a convertible Audi, took a tour of the football stadium of the Jacksonville Jaguars, received fencing lessons and was pampered at a spa. She also spent the night in a luxury hotel.
The American Cancer Society (ACS) estimates that there are more than 2.5 million breast cancer survivors living in the United States today.
The organization recommends that women in their 20s and 30s have a clinical breast examination as a part of their regular exam at least once every three years. Breast self-exams are also highly recommended for women in their 20s.
