Anita Coleman is 54-years-old. She was first diagnosed with breast cancer in 2001, and suffered a relapse on February 21, 2014 after a regular mammogram came back suspicious.

Based in Los Angeles, Anita is a mother and grandmother, fighting breast cancer for the second time.

She recounts her first diagnosis, and how her family has helped her find the strength to fight the disease once again.

Thank you for presenting the final Under Her Skin program in the early morning of March 21, 2015. For us out here in Los Angeles, WNYC.org is a voice in the sleepless night -- but had I known in advance of the quality of this accidentally-received gift, I would surely have set the alarm. I hope you can find some way to enter it for a 2015 Pulitzer. Please pass my deep appreciation on to Mr. Hockenberry, the production staff, the physician guests -- and, of course, above all -- to the three wonderfully courageous ladies, Crystal Miller, Lisa Echols, and Anita Coleman (and their loved and loving ones) who made such a production possible.
