House Call: Breast Cancer Survival and The Women’s Only 5K Walk & Run
Denny Kelly was diagnosed with breast cancer in 1998, and underwent chemotherapy and radiation to treat the disease.
Because Denny was routine in getting her yearly mammogram, the cancer was detected at an early stage and her treatment was successful. She has since become and advocate for breast cancer survivorship, research and the importance of mammography.
Part of her advocacy involves participating in the Women’s Only 5K Walk & Run each year, which raises money for the Mammography Scholarship Fund. The fund provides free, life-saving mammograms and follow-up care for women who are uninsured or lack the financial means to pay for the screening.
Denny has been a race participant since 2000 and enjoys the huge sense of comradery along with the sisterhood of survivorship and support she feels each year at the event. Denny looks forward to walking in this year’s 20th Anniversary Women’s Only 5K Walk & Run on October 6.
Denny Kelly has been a breast cancer survivor for fourteen years. Diagnosed in 1998, she completed successful treatment at Cone Health Cancer Center. Denny serves as president and CEO of Bouvier Kelly, a Greensboro-based public relations and marketing firm. She has also become an advocate for breast cancer awareness, participating and fundraising for many breast cancer events such as the local Women’s Only 5K Walk & Run, and the Susan G. Komen 3-Day 60 Mile Walk.
