       NATIONWIDE — Katrina Shaw gained the respect of being an unapologetic leader in her community for the development of the urban garden where she and other volunteers plant and grow organic food. Her passion for living a healthy lifestyle emerged during her battle with Breast Cancer. A year later, her husband was diagnosed with cancer, and Katrina also lost her baby during this time. Today, Katrina and her husband are now cancer-free. It was rough, but instead of being bitter, she decided to make it better by starting her own business because she has a passion for helping others.

She is the CEO and Founder of MANE – Mammograms Are Not Enough, Inc., a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization for breast cancer awareness based in Maryland. As a breast cancer survivor, Katrina was featured in Johns Hopkins Magazine, their social media handles, and their website in a featured story entitled “A Moment’s Notice”.

Katrina serves as a Top Lead Legislative Ambassador in her Congressional District for the American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network (ACS CAN). Katrina is a speaker and co-author of Women Who Soar and the best-selling book Courageous Women Find Strength During the Storm: Volume II by Dr. Missy Johnson, where she shares her story about overcoming breast cancer and losing her baby.

Katrina offers workshops and speaks on the following topics: Breast Cancer Prevention; Mammograms Are Not Enough; How to Live a Healthy and Wise; and How to Maintain Balance with Plant-Based Foods.
