NVU has partnered with Connie Dwyer Breast Cancer Foundation to fight against breast cancer. We were inspired to do so by Ennis White. She was my cousin, confidant, biggest supporter, worst critic, partner in crime, and my dearest friend.
Ennis was a 50 something female that lost her fight with breast cancer. Retired, but she has worked as a Case Manager for several agencies throughout Newark, NJ for over 13 years, educated many on HIV awareness and has provided care for countless children. Ennis has 3 surviving children, one Great Grandchild, 4 Grandchildren, many friends, a host of family and will surely be missed.
Her story began with a yearly breast exam after which a mammogram was ordered during the last week of October, 2018. By November 21st Ennis was scheduled for surgery where a double mastectomy was performed. Her recovery was going well and her spirits were always upbeat and I truly admired her for that.
During her 3 month check-in, a mass was found on her chest and as of March 21st. Ennis was informed that the re-occurrence of cancer and eventually metastasized to her brain.
To find out more about Ennis and to look back at her journey (including videos) find her on Facebook.
