Her Story: Marlene
The Inaugural President and Co-founder of The Journey Continues (TJC). Marlene King, a cancer warrior, was passionate about the importance of breast cancer research, patients' rights, supporting men and women who have been diagnosed with breast cancer, and other efforts. Her wish was to have a 5K walk in Baltimore City with a focus on all cancer research and awareness. Marlene’s wish came true with the 2016 induction of the TJC's Annual 5K Warrior Walk Over All Cancers.
Marlene, a native Jamaican, devoted wife, mother and grandmother was diagnosed at 48 with breast cancer and later with metastatic Stage IV breast cancer, transitioned to eternal victory in November, 2015.
