This is a very special post for us. Not only is it the FIRST in our “Student Spotlight” series, but it is with someone who is very dear to our hearts. We recently sat down with our very own, Maggie Kudirka, the Bald Ballerina. A dancer in our Joffrey Ballet Concert Group, Maggie was diagnosed with stage four breast cancer in June 2014 at the age of 23. In this intimate interview we discuss her journey from diagnoses to today and what she hopes to accomplish with her new initiative. Take a look!
Update: On October 14, 2014 Maggie completed the last in her series of six chemo treatments. However, this only marks the first phase of treatment. She will continue to receive Herceptin every three weeks, for the rest of her life.
