Marlena Caldwell was the face of Alison's Allies during the 2022 fundraising campaign. I met Marlena when she was an educator in the Olathe School District. Marlena had to retire early because she has Schogrin's, a lung disease. Marlena is also a Invasive Ductal Carcinoma breast cancer survivor. Marlena tells her story in these video clips:
