Meet Our 2018 Honoree

Dawn Sanford is a 10-year breast cancer survivor. She was born and raised in our area. She is the wife of Thomas and the mom of Mitchell and Farrah, 19 and 18 years old respectively. The family lives in LaGrange. Dawn has worked in Special Education for BOCES for 10 years, currently assigned to Vail Farm Elementary School of the Arlington Central School District.

She was diagnosed with Stage One Ductal Carcinoma In Situ (DCIS) in January 2008 after a routine mammogram showed abnormality just a few weeks prior. To that point, Dawn had no family history of breast cancer.

Dawn underwent surgeries for a bi-lateral mastectomy and reconstruction at Vassar Brothers Hospital and to this day is monitored with bi-annual blood tests and a regimen of Tamoxifen. She loves animals as well as antiquing, gardening and helping others. She considers herself a very positive person, which along with the support of her family, friends, medical team, church community and the Co-Founder of Miles of Hope herself, Dana Effron, helped her get through this difficult diagnosis and treatment. She looks ahead with hope.

For the past 9 years, Dawn’s survivorship has been celebrated by her friends on the “Dawn’s Dunkers” women’s basketball team at the Hoops for Hope Tournament.
