Follow-Up with Breast Cancer Survivor Marisa Cote


Back in October, What You Can Do and the Breast Cancer Site interviewed breast cancer survivor Marisa Cote. We recently caught up with Marisa to see how she’s doing now, seven months after her last chemo treatment — and she’s doing great!

Marisa credits her mother as inspiration during this difficult time in her life. When Marisa was seven, her mother was diagnosed with leukemia. “I saw her go through treatment at a young age, and I was able to see how strong of a woman she was,” Marisa said. “So I think that helped me to go through my treatment and I hoped that I could do the same thing… live without cancer for the rest of my life.”
