Ann Hargraves

This week's Badass Chick is Ann Hargraves, cancer survivor and co-chair of the North Shore Cancer WALK. 

In 2014, Ann was diagnosed with Stage 4 Lymphoma and given two weeks to live. Fast forward to 2018: not only is she in remission, but she's planning a wedding, raising her children, and has been asked to co-chair the North Shore Cancer WALK. Her desire to join in the walk began while she was getting treatment: she promised herself that if she's able to walk, she was going to participate. So, six weeks after she wrapped up chemo, she did it. Ann's raised over $15,000 so far (not including this year!) and she was even the top fundraiser two years in a row. The North Shore Cancer WALK is taking place next weekend and it's not too late to sign up if you're interested. 

Ann has said that she couldn't have gotten through her battles without the support of her family, friends and the support services offered from MGH and North Shore Medical Center, so that's why she's so motivated to raise the money. Also, her kids are old enough to join her this year for the WALK so it's going to be a really special event.
