Inspring woman loses cancer battle

Local News

The Albion woman who inspired all who knew her with her courage and faith lost her decade long battle with cancer Wednesday.

It was last month we told you the story of 46 year old Mikki Bort who was teaching Tai Chi classes at the Suburban YMCA in Edinboro, despite being in a battle for her life.

Bort was diagnosed with breast cancer 10 years ago and beat it.  But, it came back with a vengence years later as brain cancer.  

The owner of a Martial Arts Academy in Albion, a wife and mother, Mikki found the strength to inspire and lead others to better mental and physical health, while suffering the ravages of multiple brain surgeries and chemo therapy.   Bort sponsored Martial Arts events in support of Linked by Pink.
