Roberta is incredible. After her own cancer diagnosis in 2016, this eye-opening experience wasn’t about making her life better, it was about truly helping others who didn’t have access to resources she did. And then she did something about it. As the Founder and President of Infinite Strength, Roberta helps struggling women figure out finances and resources during cancer treatment. Through this non-profit, she offers them hope and motivation to keep fighting even though the obstacles go way beyond treatment. On this episode she talks about how important it is to help, shares stories about making a difference and lists a few ways to assist those women in need dealing with cancer.
