Cheryl Johnson, President and CEO of The West Central Georgia Cancer Coalition was elated to receive the masks on behalf of the breast cancer warriors the coalition helps.

“With Paint the Town week being next week, we’re so excited to be able to give something to the survivors and this is truly, truly a blessing,” said Cheryl Johnson, President & CEO of the West Central Georgia Cancer Coalition. 

Cheyenne has donated about 300 masks to other nonprofits in Georgia. She has advice for other young people.
