2023 was marked by resilience and transformation as Tina Powell, Chief of Community at, faced unexpected challenges in her 'year of health.'


After selling her business in November 2022, Tina Powell earmarked 2023 her "year of health." The first step on that journey was to get a full body scan at the Princeton Longevity Center on Martin Luther King day 2023. That scan would change the trajectory of her life. 

That day, her doctors discovered a 2.1 cm tumor on her right lung. Despite being a healthy, fit non-smoker, she was launched into a challenging and emotional journey battling lung cancer.
