Danja Minta & Wayne Zwick

Star: Danja Minta

I was born and raised in Germany and came to the United States 20 years ago with my husband, a now retired Navy Officer and we have two teenage boys. I was diagnosed with breast cancer earlier this year and had a double mastectomy resulting in a very good prognosis. I learned about Loving Arms Cancer Outreach’s support group and immediately reached out to join. The emotional support I receive is priceless. I believe so strongly in the mission of Loving Arms that I became part of the Loving Arms family, serving on the Advisory Board. I am very grateful that Loving Arms is there to provide the emotional support needed by those of us with cancer and am proud to represent in this competition.
