Cancer patients who work with social worker Judith Kehoe are often astounded by her great empathy. Few realize that it comes from first-hand experience. J 26 udith Kehoe knows a lot about cancer. She’s a great resource for the patients at the Center for Cancer & Blood Disorders in her role as a social worker. But what most people don’t know is that much of her knowledge comes from Judith’s own cancer journey which began in March of 2004 when she was diagnosed with breast cancer, specifically a Stage II Triple Positive Invasive Carcinoma.
