NAPLES, Fla. - A stage 3 breast cancer survivor is taking her experience and helping other women fight the disease that kills one woman every :69 seconds.
Liz Anderson, owner of Cross Fit Blaze in Naples was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2009... but in June her doctors she was negative of any signs.
She is now taking her experience and helping other women get the exam that helped save her life.
Anderson has teamed her business up with Mammograms in Action to raise money to provide free screenings to those who can't afford them.
"I feel like my life was saved by a mammogram so as soon I heard that I said 'We've got to do this,'" said Anderson.
The gym owner is hosting a month long fundraiser called 'Barbells for Boobs' and 150 people showed up to the initial celebration that raised $3,000.
