Cancer Support Community North Texas

Volunteer of the Month: Deb Knust

Apr 03


When I was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2002, I was 45 years old and had 4 children ages 12 to 18. With the support of my family and friends, I am now a 16 year survivor. When friend, Anne Brady, told me about her work at Cancer Support Community of North Texas, I felt this would be a good fit for me. Almost a year later, I feel as if I have found my home. I truly enjoy working as hostess and welcoming members as they pop in for a class, enjoy a snack, or come in to chat with other members who have become friends. CSCNT is such a wonderful place for anyone impacted by cancer. My husband, Dave, has heard me talk about CSCNT so much that he is now a volunteer. When not volunteering, I enjoy traveling the world and spending time with my family, especially my two grandsons.
