LAS VEGAS (AP) - The White House is honoring a Nevada breast
cancer survivor for championing cancer awareness.
Delia Oliveri was invited to join a meeting at the White House Tuesday on fighting breast cancer.

Oliveri was diagnosed with breast cancer in 1983 and had a
mastectomy. She then was diagnosed in 1999 with chronic lymphocytic leukemia, which has no cure.
She is a longtime volunteer for the American Cancer Society.
The White House names a new champion each week.
