With a history of breast cancer in her family and after losing her mother to the disease, former Miss Hawaii Olena Heu took a genetic test. Her results put her at a much higher risk of developing it so she opted to have a double mastectomy. She has chronicled her journey and inspires women. That's why the Susan G. Komen has honored her with the Christa Wittmier "Super CW" Award of Courage.
