Erin Leland set her alarm for 5:30 am every morning. The full-time teacher, mom, wife, and activist had a lot to do and didn’t want to miss a moment. Her 11-year-old twins, husband Rich, her high school English students, and the other women she met through METAvivor were the reasons she woke up so early.
Diagnosed with metastatic breast cancer in 2018, Erin died from the disease, which has no cure, far too soon. But not before the 42-year-old made the kind of impact it takes most people a much longer lifetime to make.
