Michele Blackwood: Cancer Heroine

Michele Blackwood has been on The Early Show a lot recently, trying to help our audience sort out all the research available about breast cancer. There is so much information that can be confusing at times and Michele has an incredible way of sorting it all out in a very straightforward and caring manner.

I really admire her work in a field that affects so many women! Find out what inspires her.

My goal in life is to help women take control of their health by offering them sound medical advice mixed with old-fashioned common sense, through my Web site Cathedral Healthcare System.

I counsel women daily about their medical conditions, how they can help themselves, when to ask others for help and to make sure they take care of themselves. I hope by sharing my medical knowledge and my experience as a mother, wife, daughter and patient, I can inspire others to care for themselves, their families and their friends. — Michele Blackwood
