When Tina Vitolo-Kester received a breast cancer diagnosis in 2016, she wanted her treatment to move fast and so it did. During the time in which she had a double mastectomy, chemotherapy and radiation, other health problems emerged that were unforeseen. She had a heart attack during a procedure. Shocked to find herself in the Intensive Care Unit, she was concerned that this turn of events would set her treatment plan back. Things got back on track as soon as possible. As treatment and healing took top priority, Tina’s employer was unable to wait for her return and dismissed her from her job.
