Tammy Myers is an art director, photographer, breast cancer survivor, and founder of the Forgotten Fighters movement. On February 16th, 2015 Tammy was diagnosed with breast cancer at just 33 years old. With 14 surgeries, chemotherapy, and radiation treatments behind her, Tammy is optimistic that she is right where she needs to be and she is certain that she is doing exactly what she was always meant to do, even if it’s uncomfortable.
With her advertising background and a passion for cause-based work, she turned her cancer diagnosis into a project that brings hope and inspiration to others. Forgotten Fighters offers a rare glimpse into what a young woman actually faces when diagnosed with breast cancer, through both intimate blog posts and telling photos. Most recently, Tammy was awarded two gold American Advertising Federation awards—as well as Judge’s Choice—at the West Michigan Addy Awards, and will go on to compete at a regional level.
