#HipNJ Celebrates 20 Years of Komen North Jersey: Ana Harper

Ana Harper, Forever Fighter and Susan G. Komen North Jersey supporter, discusses her battle with breast cancer.

The first time Harper was diagnosed, she was pregnant with her son. “Okay, well let’s do what we gotta do,” she responded.

Now, her cancer has metastasized, but that hasn’t let her fighting spirit down.

“The reason I cry is because I always think about how sad everybody else is around me, because of me,” she says. “Hopefully, everybody gets together and we’ll find a cure.”
