Every Day at Risk: A conversation with Cindy Tenner, Long Term Cancer Survivor Living with Heart Failure
August 20, 2020
Cindy Tenner was diagnosed with Hodgkin's lymphoma at age 19, and later in life battled cancer which came as a result of her earlier treatments. She continues to manage chronic health issues today as a Diastolic Heart Failure patient, even as she pursues a rich life as a professional, wife, mother and grandmother. Our conversation explores her journey, what it’s like to live in a pandemic given very high vulnerability and how she keeps herself as safe as possible from COVID-19. We address managing expectations for health and life, and Cindy’s approach to maintaining a rich social and family life.
Cindy Tenner graduated Middlebury College in 1981 and has held a variety of professional roles from banking to technology. She currently works in marketing and community outreach with the non-profit Springwell, Inc, which offers a range of services to seniors, people with disabilities, and caregivers.
