Long Beach resident Maggie Gallo has a story to tell — about surviving breast cancer.
And the 46-year-old breast cancer survivor is going to do so next month during the Cancer Support Community South Bay’s 25th annual Celebrate Wellness event on July 10. The nonprofit — which offers workshops, support groups and other help to those with cancer — will also celebrate its 35th anniversary during the event.
Gallo’s story centers on how long it took her to find out why she felt she was in ill health — nearly three years.
Gallo had complained to her doctors since December 2017 that she felt something was wrong. But results from a mammogram and ultrasound in early 2018, she said, came back normal.
