Meet Kristen Berset-Harris: The Host of The Hair Affair DC on May 3

One month before her wedding, Kristen Berset-Harris felt a hard lump in her breast and thought “not again.” Instead of retreating to fight cancer alone, Berset-Harris, a TV anchor in Washington, D.C., announced to viewers that she would be taking a leave of absence to fight her second bout of breast cancer.

But Berset-Harris didn’t retreat to the shadows. As she spent time recovering with her husband and two stepdaughters, she had a chance to reflect on who she was and what she wanted to be in life. While recovering, she interviewed and accepted her dream job–hosting Great Day Washington on WUSA 9 in August 2017.

This year, we are proud to welcome her as the evening’s host for The Hair Affair on Thursday, May 3, 2018 at The Carnegie Institution for Science from 7:00pm to 11:00pm. A lightly edited Q&A follows.

Meet Heather Caro: The Hair Affair DC’s Honored Guest and Speaker

Heather Caro was a 32 year-old wife and mother of two kids, excited about starting her new job as a nurse in the ICU, when she found a pea-sized lump on her breast.  Her battle with cancer meant she had to miss work, and she hadn’t worked at her current job long enough to qualify for the job protections associated with the Family and Medical Leave Act, so she lost her job and her health insurance.

In the five years since her diagnosis, Caro has become an outspoken advocate for providing safeguards and protections for cancer patients, and her formidable leadership has gotten others’ attention. She opened up for an interview with People Magazine, gave an acclaimed Ted Talk, and is now the honored guest and speaker for Lolly’s Locks’ 6th Annual DC Gala, The Hair Affair DC, on May 3, 2018.

She took some time to answer questions with Lolly’s Locks. A lightly edited Q and A follows.
