Anna Berrier

Melanoma cancer survivor

My family was aware of cancer risks because my father died of a brain tumor, so when this odd looking mole showed up behind my knee, I didn't hesitate to get it looked at.

Anna knew from family history that her cancer risk factors were high. Given her fair skin, she had been taking precautions to reduce skin cancer risks.

No one expects life-threatening cancer in their mid-20s, but when Anna saw an odd-looking mole on her leg, she knew to have it checked.

She went to Winship where the surgery to remove melanoma went well for Anna and she’s able to say that she’s cancer-free.

The first goal of cancer treatment is to fight the cancer. But patients, like Anna, quickly find their true motivation in this fight is to live and thrive.   Anna has since finished college in Special Education with an emphasis on working with children and helping others – something that she loves.
