Long-term pancreatic cancer survivor Helene Avraham-Katz

When Helene Avraham-Katz was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer, she and her family made the decision to fight it with everything they could.

She had chemotherapy and a Whipple procedure but the cancer came back after a year. Helene knew she was BRCA2 positive, so she looked for clinical trials that matched her genetic mutation. She’s now on a PARP inhibitor and doing well. She runs her store The Butterfly Effect, and enjoys her life.
