Suellen Kaeb

I relocated to Sarasota from Illinois in 1987 to take advantage of living in the Sunny South.  I work at Sarasota Memorial Hospital as a Registered Nurse in the Labor and Delivery and High Risk Obstetrics.

I was member of the Founding Board of Breast Health Sarasota Inc. in 1999.  Breast cancer has been a passion for me since having lost my Aunt to the disease in 1991.  She left behind a three year old daughter that cold December 26th.  It was then I made a personal commitment to make a difference in the breast cancer community.  I have those same emotions today believing that no little girl should lose her Mommy this way!

I feel that making a difference in the Women’s Healthcare field is my gift.  I enjoy sharing in the education process of Women’s Wellness and healthcare in general.  As a Labor and Delivery nurse I can help educate the future generations in taking an active role in wellness.  I take this opportunity to share my vision of someday taking Breast Cancer out of our vocabulary.

I enjoyed a career in Banking, Customer service and associate coaching for many years. In 2011 my life was forever changed when I was diagnosed with stage 3 breast cancer. I am now a three year cancer survivor and loving life.

I have become an advocate since learning many Sarasota County breast cancer patients struggle paying for breast health services and treatments after being diagnosed with breast cancer. My husband and I began fundraising for local Breast Cancer Centers, before I even completed my treatment.

I am honored to serve on the BHS Inc. board, as Secretary a long side these outstanding women. BHS Inc. has a mission to help local woman with breast health awareness and services. I share the same passion.
