Susan G. Komen Connecticut Race for the Cure
TRUMBULL - One of the two sisters co-chairing this year's Susan G. Komen "Race for the Cure" in Norwalk has fought a personal battle with breast cancer.
Judy Vig was diagnosed with stage 2 breast cancer in September 2012. She and her identical twin sister, Joy Paoletti, are known as the successful cooking duo Twice Baked Twins.
Vig says she was 1 1/2 years late on her mammogram, and felt a lump. She endured months of chemotherapy with the help of family, food and laughter to get her through.

Vig has been cancer-free for a year.
