Tanya Russell was part of our online TNBC support group, and we met briefly while attending the Young Survival Coalition (C4YW) Conference 2014 in Orlando this past February. We talked for a few minutes at the hotel's pool, it was a short visit but was happy to meet her. Sadly, Tanya passed on May 23, 2014.  Rest peacefully sweet sister, we'll continue the fight from here.
