#UVA researcher Michael McConnell is tackling the underlying causes of destructive neuropsychiatric diseases.

Meet our #WCW, C. J. Walker! A two-time cancer survivor, C. J. knows firsthand how quickly cancer can change your whole life. But she didn’t give up. She told her doctor that if she had to complete five months of chemo, her goal would be to train and run the Women’s 4 Miler faster than she had in the previous year. She knew she could make it, and she did. Even in the face of adversity, she remained strong and always remembers how blessed she is to have a supportive family. Her eight-year old daughter once told her, ‘Mommy, it hurts to see you having to do chemo and having two parents without hair because Daddy cut all his hair off. But you are still beautiful and Daddy and I will always take care of you.’ We’re blessed to have women like you supporting us, C. J. Email if you'd like to share your stories, and read C. J.'s full story at!
