In 2010, Marion was diagnosed with breast cancer. She thanks early detection, being proactive, mentors, and group counseling to her success of being a 10-year survivor who is thriving. Her fight with breast cancer was not her first experience. When she was 18 years old, she was diagnosed with thyroid cancer. She is a 25-year survivor of thyroid cancer and over the years has seen a lot of changes in treatment and counseling. Marion is a Fire Prevention Engineer with the Los Angeles County Fire Department and will not allow cancer to keep her out of the fire service. She enjoys traveling and feels it plays a huge part in her positive mental health. We are so grateful to have her as one of our mentors at FCSN.
