NCCC Charlotte Chapter Leader: Jane Fitch
May 2011 – Jane was diagnosed with stage IIB cervical cancer. After several months of treatment, which included external radiation, chemo, internal radiation, and a hysterectomy, she was declared NED on August 26, 2011! During that course of treatment, the only community (other than family and a few friends) she had was her oncology team. She knew that when she had recovered, she wanted to make sure that other women did not have to experience what she did. She discovered the National Cervical Cancer Coalition and became a Chapter Leader for Charlotte. Jane is passionate about sharing education and awareness in the community. She is available for events, speaking engagements, and one on one sessions.
A Message from Chapter Leader Jane Fitch
“I became a chapter leader because as a four-year cervical cancer survivor, I went through a difficult and challenging journey. The only contact I had was with my medical team—it was a lonely and painful journey. It was not until I finished treatment that I found NCCC and others who had experienced something similar. I knew from the time I had my first chemotherapy treatment that I wanted to make a message from the mess. The cancer club is not a club that someone wants to be a part of. My goal is to educate and support our local community.”
