4-year breast cancer survivor






Arlette Hagans was diagnosed with breast cancer in July of 2017. A four year breast cancer survivor, Arlette is a natural born Long Islander, and is a proud daughter, a mother to her adult son and daughter, and a grandmother to three amazing grandchildren. Arlette credits her strong faith to helping her survive and thrive throughout her journey with breast cancer.

Throughout her surgeries and treatment, Arlette continued to work in the field of customer service and telemarketing, helping others. Arlette is dedicated to letting other women know the importance of keeping your faith, even when times are tough and that together, anything is possible. 

7-year breast cancer survivor






Luisa was diagnosed with breast cancer in the summer of 2014.  After successfully completing chemotherapy treatment, she had surgery followed by radiation.  Luisa credits her family, especially her husband, for helping her get through the tough times during treatment.  Also, her job as a finance professional played a key role in keeping her mind occupied and helped her remain focused during her journey.

3-year breast cancer survivor, volunteer






At age 45, after finding a lump accidentally while rolling over in bed, Julie Bickar Nappi was diagnosed with breast cancer that had already spread to a lymph node, despite having had a negative mammogram and ultrasound only a few months prior. Her children were ages 9 and 11 at the time and were instrumental in helping Julie get through surgery, chemo and radiation. She is now cancer-free while she continues with hormone therapy as well as participates in the national Aspirin for Breast Cancer (“ABC”) clinical trial. Both of Julie’s parents were diagnosed with later stage cancers and died too young, so she strongly encourages people to become their own advocates and educate themselves about cancer. Appearing on TV News12 in 2020 during the pandemic, Julie urged cancer screenings. Julie is a management consultant and board member at Ardmore Home Design/Made Goods; she obtained her MBA from Harvard Business School and her BS in Economics from The Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania.
