Collette Taylor McIntyre
Cancer has touched the lives of Collette McIntyre and her family in multiple ways over the past three years. Collette went it for her annual mammogram in October of 2013 and received a clean report. However, one month later she noticed a suspicious knot in her breast and subsequently was diagnosed with stage II breast cancer on December 5, 2013.
This marked the beginning of Collette's personal journey with cancer. She began receiving aggressive chemotherapy treatments, surgeries, more treatments, and more surgeries coupled with many, many doctor's visits throughout the year of 2014. While still recovering in the early fall of 2014, just when things began to get easier, Collette’s father was diagnosed with stage IV pancreatic cancer and his body succumbed to the disease six weeks later. Collette and her family experienced two different outcomes with cancer: one gave cancer a face of hope and the other gave it a face of defeat.
Collette is married to John S. McIntyre III; they have three children Taylor (23), Catherine (21) and John IV (17). Collette and John met in college and graduated from University of Mississippi in 1989. They were married in 1991 and have lived here in Jackson, Mississippi ever since.
In addition to her volunteer efforts at the American Cancer Society, Collette has also volunteered in many other community organizations. She was an active member of the Junior League of Jackson where she served on the Child Assault Prevention Team, Arrangements Committee, Eudora Welty Library Committee and the 2005 Mistletoe Market Steering Committee as Special Events Chair. She is a past board member of Friends of Children’s Hospital Board of Directors, and has volunteered with Jackson Academy Association, Susan G. Komen, Mississippi Children’s Museum, Arthritis Association and many more.
Currently Collette is enjoying mentoring other breast cancer patients. She also enjoys being a wife and a mom, working in the garden, cooking, cheering on her Ole Miss Rebels and Jackson Academy Raiders!
“I feel very blessed to be here, to be healthy and especially cancer free. God has a plan for each of us and it’s not always easy, therefore, we must remember to find the silver lining in everything,” Collette said.
For more than a 100 years, The American Cancer Society has been leading the fight to end cancer. With your support, we have helped usher in an era where more people survive cancer than ever before. By translating our research findings into action, we've seen a 20% decline in US cancer death rates since the early 1990s.
