Not only is Eileen Z. Fuentes the Uptown Collective’s wellness contributor, she is also, more importantly, my wife and the mother of my 3 daughters. I have seen this woman go from a heartbreaking triple-negative breast cancer diagnosis at the age of 34 to the subsequent surgeries and chemotherapy treatment, to deciding that cancer would not defeat her. Eileen made it her life’s mission to help other women with their cancer journeys by starting the very first Women’s Wellness Series right here at the Columbia University Medical Center.
