Some Like It Hot
We fall in love every month here at EOTS. Like hard.
Yes, we're ♥ hopeless romantics ♥ but that aside - we're crazy about our Survivors month after month, and folks, December is no different.
We know it's December not February (Cupid sighs) but even Santa applauds a good love story. (We mean, have you SEEN the Hallmark channel?)
Meet Torra Waynick, our current heartthrob for December.
Sure, she's beautiful (see above!) BUT we're smitten with her spirit and blown away by her FIRE!! And if you're East Coast like us, you need some heat (shivering as we type).
Torra's spark ignited back in 2015 when she received her breast cancer diagnosis and has been blazing ever since.
"I was no longer a spectator of the war against this disease, I had been drafted!"
She compared receiving the news with a nuclear bomb detonating inside her.
"It was my turn to suit up and steady - then ready myself to fight for my very own life," she recalled.
Prior to her deployment, Torra already knew how to gear up for a challenge being an avid kickboxer (see her in action above).
With this passion, and the combined support of her medical team, family, friends and network of sorority sisters (shout out to Delta Sigma Theta), Torra was equipped to crush this thing - and she did.
"Yes, I am not only a breast cancer survivor, I am a breast cancer conqueror and I continue to be a champion for breast cancer awareness, continuously advocating to all about the positive results from early detection."
