Kathy Steligo is a business and health writer who has more than a nodding acquaintance with breast cancer. Diagnosed twice (11 years apart), she has had five biopsies, two lumpectomies, radiation, sentinel node biopsy, genetic counseling, genetic testing, bilateral mastectomies, implant reconstruction, and a second GAP reconstruction.
Kathy writes for numerous publications, websites, physicians, and health organizations, and in the course of a normal day juggles writing assignments, counseling women about their post-mastectomy reconstruction options, and volunteer work.
While researching her book, The Breast Reconstruction Guidebook, in 2002, Kathy discovered Facing Our Risk of Cancer Empowered (FORCE), the only nonprofit dedicated to improving the lives of people affected by hereditary breast and ovarian cancers. Kathy began editing and writing for FORCE, and is now the organization's Editor-at-Large and a featured presenter at the group's annual Joining FORCEs conference. She also maintains http://www.breastrecon.com, providing online information about breast reconstruction.
