Mayor announces she is cancer free

Mayor announces she is cancer free“I have had my last chemo – I have no cancer,” announced Mayor Peggy Breeden at Wednesday night’s Ridgecrest City Council meeting. Breeden announced to the public earlier this year that she had begun chemotherapy treatments for breast cancer. She has since undergone a double-mastectomy surgery and is cancer free. “You all helped make it happen. I thank the doctors, but I thank everyone for their prayers and their concerns.” -- Photo by Laura Austin
