A metro area woman who survived cancer in both breasts delivered a powerful and poignant message in southeast Atlanta on Wednesday.
Shondia McFadden-Sabari got a standing ovation at Meadowview Elementary for her inspiring testimonial.
The wife and mother of two shared her family's support and how she forged through her life-changing experience, describing that moment when a nurse shared the news of what she was facing.
Shondia had a double mastectomy and decided against reconstructive surgery.
The audience included other cancer survivors.
Shondia speaks to churches, at community events on radio and television shows to inspire others facing similar circumstances.
