Be Your Own Advocate


Having had breast cancer once before a few years ago, Shirley Roberson was careful to get her check-ups and screenings. She recently felt there was something wrong yet she was told she was fine. When it was discovered that indeed her cancer had returned, it was stage 4. She was given little hope. That’s when she decided to come to Karmanos. Shirley joyfully participated in Komen Detroit Race for the Cure this year for the first time, surrounded by her team of loved ones. Listen as WDIV Local 4’s Rhonda Walker shares Shirley’s inspirational story.
