When Desirée Walker was diagnosed with breast cancer, she considered not treating it—but more frightening to her than the side effects of chemotherapy was missing the chance to watch her children grow.
In “Mother Knows Best”—part of the Your Stories Featured Conversations series from Conquer Cancer, the ASCO Foundation—Desirée talks to her daughter, Shayna Walker, about surviving breast cancer, her resiliency throughout the recurrence of the disease, and how she chose to cope.
