 Amelia's Story: Breast Cancer at 28


Before February 6th, 2013, Amelia Coffaro was a normal young woman. She was in New York City, working as a photographer and living her dream. But everything changed for her on that day in February. 

Amelia was just a few months past her 28th birthday when she received her cancer diagnosis.

At the recent Columbia St. Mary’s Foundation Gala, Amelia shared her inspiring and heartwarming journey. Her grace and maturity in the face of so much uncertainty and struggle left everyone in awe. 

Please take a moment to view a video about Amelia’s incredible journey.



We’d also like to extend our sincerest thanks to all of our guests and sponsors, who donated more than $290,000 to Columbia St. Mary’s Breast Cancer Programs. This money will go a long way toward helping countless women throughout southeastern Wisconsin.

If you'd like to help women like Amelia, you can make a gift to Columbia St. Mary’s Cancer Centers.
