About Cynthia Lutz

My participation in the Pink Fund event “Dancing with the Survivors” is dedicated to my two biological sisters Marcia and Barbara who lost their courageous fights with cancer. My fundraising efforts are dedicated to all of my other sisters fighting this battle. Together, let’s show them that we care and that they are not alone.

As most of you know, I am a two-time breast cancer survivor. In 1999, I was recently divorced and starting over in a new home with my then 11 year old daughter Sasha and my 7 year old son Mac when I was diagnosed with Ductal Carcinoma Insitu, or DCIS. The cancer was in my right breast and was extensive though noninvasive. I had a mastectomy but thankfully dodged the treatment bullet.

My second diagnosis came 12 years later in late October, 2011. I was not as fortunate as the first time. To begin with, I was horribly misdiagnosed and was told by the first doctor, “You’re good to go; see you next year.” Had I not discovered a large tumor 2 days later, “See you next year” would not have been an option. I had stage 3 cancer in my left breast and a cancerous tumor above it in the mammary nodes. I got a second opinion from the doctors at University of Michigan Cancer Center and chose to go there for treatment. My cancer was so serious that I immediately began a 3 month chemotherapy program. Other than having cancer, I was healthy so with a flash of fortitude, I squared my shoulders, promised my cancer that I intended to win, and had my head shaved, which was a welcome measure of control. When I completed the chemo treatments, I had my left breast removed and underwent radiation treatments. Then, finally, I began to heal.

My new reality was tenderly embraced by Howard, whom I had been married to for 10 years. He became a blend of saint and soldier, telling me my job was to rest, sleep, and eat well. Howard managed all else like his life depended on it, and he will tell you that it did.

During and after each of my battles with cancer, I had every support necessary to make these experiences as stress free as possible. My emotional health would have been greatly altered if I had been lacking financial support while my immune system was immensely compromised. It is my honor to pay homage and monetarily help support my sisters’ needs as much as possible during their times of adjustment, treatment, and convalescence. My greatest hope is that you will further this effort through your generous donations.

Dancing With The Survivors
