Join This Woman's Words as we welcome 2013 Boston Marathon Runner and Breast Cancer Survivor Lynda Nijensohn to the show.

Lynda was diagnosed with Stage IIB Breast Cancer in 2008.  Most of her treatments were at the Dana Farber Cancer Institute in Boston, MA.  As a way of giving back she ran her first marathon, the 2011 Boston Marathon with the Dana Farber Marathon Challenge Team.  She ran with the same team in 2012 and 2013 but stopped short of the finish this year because of the bombings.

Despite the abrupt end to the race the cause for which she runs is going STRONG! BOSTON STRONG!
