Founder, The Remissionaries
Hi, I’m Christina. I’m a Taiwanese-born American, nonprofit founder, events director, entrepreneur, activist, and breast cancer survivor. I was diagnosed in 2018 with HER-2 positive invasive ductal carcinoma. After 6 rounds of chemo, hair loss, 1 year of immunotherapy, a bilateral mastectomy, and breast reconstruction, I was declared cancer free. Since then, I founded The Remissionaries, a nonprofit organization that focuses on providing comfort and care for women with a breast cancer diagnosis undergoing chemotherapy treatments. Originally from Southern California, my husband and I consider ourselves Vegas locals of 17+ years. We share our beautiful home in the desert with our 2 fur babies. Beyond advocating for breast cancer action, empowering women and girls of color, and supporting AAPI communities, my passions include live music, Broadway musicals, figure skating, hockey, snowboarding, travel, food, and coffee.
I believe in the power of community, in our ability to heal from trauma, and in the ability of strangers to make our world a better place.
