Moira Quinn

Triple Negative Breast Cancer Survivor, Cancer Patient Advocate

Moira Quinn is Chief Operating Offer and SVP of Communications for Charlotte Center City Partners. Moira is active in community affairs, earning the distinction as one of Mecklenburg's 50 Most Influential Women, Media Professional of the Year, and a Women Business Owners Community Service Award.  She and her husband raised two successful children and have two grandchildren. They have a cat who thinks she’s a dog and three grand puppies who think they are cats.  

Moira was diagnosed with stage II triple-negative breast cancer in 2012.  Genetic testing indicated she was negative for the BRCA gene, and she underwent a lumpectomy plus chemo and radiation in 2012, being burned "to a total crisp" as she puts it.  Moira found strength and solace in her work, missing only 15 days from her various commitments over the space of a year.  As an eight-year survivor now, Moira focuses her energy as an advocate for breast cancer survivors through the Breast Advisory Board of the Levine Cancer Institute, Advisory Board for Carolina Breast Friends, Survivor Advisory Committee for Susan G. Komen and Steering Committee for Reimagine Charlotte for the American Cancer Society. Further, she helped found and organize the Triple Negative Breast Cancer Support Group, celebrating 100 members strong.
