30-Year-old cancer survivor to walk at Susan G. Komen race

The annual Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure takes place Saturday morning. One New Carlisle woman will be walking as a first-time survivor.

Kendelle Niespodziany, a 30-year-old breast cancer survivor, is sharing her story to all who think they may be too young to check for breast cancer.

She found a lump last year during a self exam and luckily caught the tumor in its early stages.

After chemotherapy and a double mastectomy, she is finally in the clear.

"It can happen to anybody at any age," said Niespodziany.

Doctors at Michiana Oncology say breast cancer is more aggressive in young women.
