Ann Romney, Breast Cancer Survivor, Spreads Word on Awareness
The Bloomfield Hills native not only has rallied for her husband Mitt Romney's presidential bid, but Ann Romney also has thrown her support behind breast cancer awareness.
While Ann Romney has taken to the presidential campaign trail to support her husband Mitt Romney, she also has rallied her efforts for another cause: breast cancer awareness.
Ann Romney, a native of Bloomfield Hills and a student at Cranbrook, is a breast cancer survivor.
In 2008, Ann Romney had surgery to remove a precancerous lump from her breast, according to the Boston Globe. Mitt Romney told CNN that Barack Obama, at the time the president-elect, called to offer his prayers to the Romney family.
So while Ann Romney has campaigned for her husband this month, including a stop in Bloomfield Township on Oct. 12, she also has focused her attention on breast cancer awareness.
Both Ann Romney and Michelle Obama wore pink dresses at the second presidential debate on Oct. 16, perhaps in a nod to Breast Cancer Awareness month.
"It was inspirational," Ann Romney told MySuncoast.com about her trip to the Moffitt Cancer Center in Tampa.
