Our Heroes check in with their latest news and triumphs

by Mary Rennie

You remember Caroline Robinson – our beautiful cover girl from 2008, a beaming newlywed focused on fighting a rare type of breast cancer and one of our Heroes. Today, we”re happy to report she”s still sporting that contagious smile – with good reason. “I finished all surgeries and treatment as of November 2008. And this past summer was my three-year “cancerversary.” ”

Over the last four years, Gwinnett Magazine has introduced you to some of the bravest, most inspirational folks we know. Cancer warriors of all ages who honor us by sharing their stories with The Heroes Project, as we work to raise awareness for the fight against cancer.

This issue, we revisit Caroline — along with 26 of her fellow Heroes — that our readers have connected with over the years, celebrating their stories of survival and updating you on their lives today.
