Parul Khare has been serving on the board since October 2020 and currently serves as the President of the BAYS Board. Parul lives in SF, in Outer Richmond with her husband and has two adult kids. She is a high school teacher and teaches Chemistry and Math. Parul got diagnosed in July of 2019, with Stage 2, HER2+ breast cancer. 6 rounds of THCP, lumpectomy, radiation and several rounds of Kadcyla later, Parul is getting used to waking up and reminding herself that things are alright. She joined BAYS almost right after her diagnosis when a coworker recommended it. Her anxiety slowly gave way to courage as she read other survivors’ experiences and got many of her own questions answered. In the pre-cancer, pre-COVID era, Parul was an avid hiker and is slowly but surely working on building up her miles. She enjoys cooking, but does not like to cook everyday. Parul is thankful to be here and hopes to know more about all of you soon!
