Hello and welcome, I’m Monica Haro. I’m a Bay Area native, where I’m now raising my son. I was diagnosed with stage IIIc invasive lobular carcinoma at age 42. I serve on the new member intake committee and coordinate BAYS writing workshops centered on healing through writing. I have found creative expression therapeutic. I feel passionate about educating the non-breast cancer community with my art, like my recent exhibit, Reconstructed. I love coffee, art, hiking, Mt. Diablo, reading, writing, photography, and music.
