"My name is Mary-Ann Sullivan. I'm very grateful to wake up every day on the "right side of the grass". I am 57 years old and have only taught military children for my almost 35 years as a teacher. I have had the great fortune of teaching across the United States, accompanying my husband as he proudly served our military as a navigator for the Air Force. I am a strong supporter of our military personnel and their families, and focus much of my volunteer time on Veterans. I was initially diagnosed in 1998 and have since battled metastatic breast cancer to my lungs and my brain. When I was first diagnosed, my son was 12 and my daughter was 17. Last year, I tested positive for the BRCA gene and made the decision to have a double mastectomy with reconstruction. Through all of this my family and friends have been a great source of support and comfort. Basically, I owe my life to Massachusetts General Hospital and my faith in God."
