Breakaway from Cancer – Day 8: Los Angeles

The 2012 Amgen Tour of California ended in Los Angeles,
where we met tons of visitors at the booth and got to host the Breakaway Mile—a
mile-long walk to celebrate cancer survivors and their support networks.

The Breakaway Mile Champion in LA was Danielle McLaughlin,
who helped re-invigorate a young adult support group at the Cancer Support
Community – Benjamin Center
. Danielle was diagnosed with cancer at age 17,
which led to the amputation of her left foot. Devastated at first, she knew she
could overcome this challenge. Danielle is currently the National and World
Paratriathlon Champion for Female Below- Knee Amputees. It was great to chat with
Danielle about her experience and an honor to walk with her in the Breakaway
Mile!
