8 yr. survivor
Kimberly Callahan is 38 years old and was diagnosed with stage 2 invasive ductal breast cancer at the age of 30. Kimberly went through six months of intense chemo, had a double mastectomy and radiation. All while in a mentally abusive relationship.
At times things seemed hopeless however she kept faith, left her relationship and started her life over. She then met an amazing man who is now her husband. Although they said there was a very high chance she would never get pregnant, she naturally did and gave birth to a healthy girl who is now four years old.

6 yr. survivor
Deborah Holley is a grandmother to three amazing grandkids and a committed chocoholic, whose favorite pastime is reading on the beach. Two years after supporting her sister through breast cancer, Deborah found herself in a similar position. Diagnosed with ductal carcinoma in situ she had an unilateral mastectomy. During the 18 months of subsequent reconstructive surgeries, Deborah, an educator of almost 30 years at the time, continued teaching. Deborah is always looking for ways to give back to the community. When an opportunity to volunteer at AUBCH was presented she was passionate about participating.

4 yr. survivor
Kathleen Marie Kaspar has been teaching English for 22 years at New Hyde Park Memorial High School. She has also taught undergraduate writing classes at St. John’s University, Hofstra University, and Nassau Community College. In addition, Kathleen has taught graduate secondary education classes at Adelphi University. She earned a B.A. from Loyola College in Maryland and a M.S. from Hofstra University.
Kathleen enjoys the beauty of Long Island’s South Shore as she grew up in Massapequa and now along with her husband, Michael frequents the sand and surf of Long Beach. She and her husband also spend much time on the North Fork along with their sidekick…Jetty, the French Bulldog.
Four years ago, during a routine health screening, Kathleen was diagnosed with breast cancer. During her treatment, she attended an event sponsored by the Adelphi Breast Cancer Program. As a result, Kathleen knew she had to pay it forward and started Pink October at New Hyde Park Memorial High School. This month-long fundraising program raises awareness for early detection and annual exams as well as engages the school community in various events. The relationship between New Hyde Park Memorial High School and the Adelphi Breast Cancer Program highlights the strength in community when all come together to continue the fight for a cure.
