Tara Petta’s Pancreatic Cancer Survival Story | Balancing Treatment, Motherhood & More

Tara Petta was balancing responsibilities with her full-time career and as a mom when she received a shocking pancreatic cancer diagnosis in September 2014. After trials and tribulations, she looks back on her journey as she approaches 10 years of pancreatic cancer survivorship.

Tara reveals the immense mental pressure she experienced while juggling all of these responsibilities. She also talks about how her children inspired her to continue fighting and reflects on the support system she relied on during this difficult time. Her story highlights the strength of motherhood, especially in trying times like fighting cancer.
