Why are you participating?
Three, very much loved and important people in my life were diagnosed with breast cancer and their journey through treatment, their recovery of body and spirit, and sadly, the passing of one of these dear souls inspired me to get involved with Susan G. Komen. It's in the memory of my mother in law and in honor of my best childhood friend and mother that I chose to participate in the BigWigs campaign and continue to support the ongoing efforts in finding a cure.
Cancer knows no age, gender, faith, color, and/or sexuality. For my daughter, I'm passionate that research aggressively continues in hopes that she, with both biological grandmothers having suffered and endured this disease, WILL NOT.
Cancer truly is, the only universal threat and as members of our community, we must generate and harness our resources of talent, funds, intelligence, and heart to save as many lives as possible. Do your part.
