Batavia resident Judy Anderson, 45, was at a friend’s garage sale when she answered 10 questions for the Kane County Chronicle’s Brenda Schory.

Where did you grow up? I was born in California, and we relocated to Chicago, and then St. Charles.

Favorite charity? Any cancer-related charity because I’m a cancer survivor.

Hobbies? I love gardening and anything landscaping. I love to walk in the river and look for antique bottles.

What is an interesting factoid about yourself? I am a squamous cell skin cancer survivor. Early detection is the most important aspect. I ignored my symptoms for almost two years because I was going through a divorce. I lost half my face to it. I had a re-section of all the cancer, radiation and chemotherapy. I had to wait a year for reconstructive surgery and wear a prosthetic nose. I’ve had about 10 surgeries. This Nov. 1, it will seven years cancer-free.
