Tatiana Prowell: We just lost one of the greats Sheila Johnson

Tatiana Prowell shared on X/Twitter:

We just lost one of the greats, Sheila Johnson. A 25 year Air Force veteran, a 15 year survivor of Metastatic Breast Cancer, a trial participant who propelled science forward for future patients, and a fierce advocate. Rest in power, Sheila Johnson. It won’t be the same without you.

Learn about Sheila Swaggsheila and her remarkable life and legacy. She was always brimming with optimism, determination, and generosity of spirit, a reminder of who we could all aspire to be. Really hard to imagine she is gone.”
