2013 - Tiffany Bauman Cantelupe
We are thrilled to announce that Tiffany Baumann Cantelupe has agreed to speak at our October 13, 2013 Spielman Breast Cancer Fundraiser. Ms Cantelupe has traveled the world working as a model, actress, and singer. She was born in Medina and is a former Miss Ohio.
In July, 2012, Tiffany felt a lump that was unfamiliar. After 2 weeks of debating, she saw her doctor. Tests revealed she had an aggressive, fast-moving type of cancer that spread to her lymph nodes.
She was 35 years old at the time of her diagnosis and had 2 young children. Tiffany received treatment including a year-long chemotherapy treatment program and surgery.
Despite her busy schedule, Tiffany has agreed to speak at our event to share her story and lend her support to our fundraising efforts.

They call triple negative the triple threat due to the fact that they really can't figure it out yet. We were honored to have her share her story with the event participants - 2011 Speech
