Stephanie Buchanan Ewers is a Knoxville native and is proud to call Knoxville her forever home. Prior to leaving the corporate world in 2013, Stephanie enjoyed a rewarding 27-year career in the book industry. When she retired from American Book Company, a worldwide book distributor and national retailer, she had earned the positions of Executive Buyer and Director of Purchasing. In spring of 2019, Stephanie was diagnosed with Paget’s Disease of the Breast (a very rare form of breast cancer). Through a friend and survivor, she was introduced to Breast Connect. Stephanie had a partial mastectomy with onco-plasty breast reduction in August 2019, followed by radiation. Her prognosis is positive.
Stephanie joined Breast Connect as administrative support in November 2019. She is honored to be a part of this organization that recognizes the need to provide a comfortable and safe place for breast cancer survivors to seek support, encouragement, information and comradery. Being the mom of two terrific kids is her favorite roll. In her spare time, she enjoys volunteering for local organizations and charities, and helping the community’s homeless and needy.
