Survivor story: Karen Schrepel

A former schoolteacher, Karen Schrepel now devotes her time to helping disabled children through therapeutic horseback riding. While recovering from cancer, Karen experienced significant pain, and struggled to get back to normal. Then, she discovered that Moncrief Cancer Institute could help her through exercise and nutrition programs.

Karen loved the free, one-on-one exercise classes at Moncrief. However, she had to make an 80-mile round trip from Granbury to attend them. Now, the services come to her town twice a month in the Mobile Cancer Survivor Clinic. “The facility on wheels is awesome,” said Karen.
