SUZETTE SWALWELL grew up in Los Angeles California and has lived there her entire life.  After graduating college, she worked in Public Relations for the Occidental Petroleum Corporation prior to becoming a full time mother to her two children with husband Chauncey.  It was at their children’s elementary school that Suzette met Stacy and Alberto Valner. Although not having any personal experience with cancer at the time, she was inspired by the Valners journey and wanted to become involved. She has served on multiple PHASE ONE gala committees and co-chaired the 2017 event. Within the last five years, Suzette has lost three immediate family members to cancer. These losses have only intensified her desire and commitment to finding a cure.  She is honored to serve on the Advisory Board.
