About

Head Shot Spring 2015

Betsy Hnath is a writer, mother and wife who lives in the Washington, D.C. area with her husband, daughter, two sons, and three dogs, all of whom graciously supply her with endless material for her work. Her pieces have appeared in various newspapers, magazines and websites on issues ranging from women’s rites to pop music.

Most recently Betsy’s work has focused on her experiences as a cancer caregiver to her husband with stage IV metastatic melanoma, and as a patient herself with stage II breast cancer (all before age 40) while still trying to mother her three young children.

She will never again gripe about sunscreen, push-up bras or healthcare premiums.

Betsy has also taught swimming for more than 25 years and wishes she could live underwater. Rather than follow in her fins, her children all chose soccer as their primary sport; which is unfortunate because so far the only thing Betsy can successfully kick is cancer’s ass.
