Christa Wittmier, a Honolulu legend, was diagnosed with late stage IDC in left breast with metastasis to lymph nodes and lungs in May of 2015. By September of that same year she showed no signs of cancer. However, in May 2016, the cancer returned more aggressively.

She underwent hormone therapy and finished whole brain radiation with regular scans to stay on top of the metastasis.
