About Me.

Staci Akselrod is a nearly 32 year old survivor of Stage 3 HER2+, ER/PR- breast cancer living in New York, NY. She was diagnosed a little over 5 years ago at age 26, and has no family history. Staci’s treatment plan included neoadjuvant TCHP chemo, radiation, and 5+ reconstructive surgeries.


Staci has been involved with roller derby for over 10 years, loves to play pinball, and since getting her cancer diagnosis she has started running. She is passionate about community building and making sure that no one feels alone through some of the hardest moments of their life while dealing with cancer.
