Five summers ago, in August of 2015, I was diagnosed with Stage 2 Breast Cancer. I was 42 years old with 2 daughters, ages 8 and 12. Our house was sold and packed for a move to Raleigh, NC when the doctor used That Word – CANCER. I call that moment “The Big Bang”.
I have chosen to share my story because we all know someone who has been impacted by Breast Cancer. October is a special month for me to remember, be thankful, and support those who are now in the fight. I love seeing pink everywhere. I love the term “pink warrior”. I pay homage to those who fought valiantly and lost to this invisible enemy. Most of all, I am forever grateful for my brilliant, compassionate team of caregivers at Dana-Farber. It is in this spirit that I have set up my annual Giving Page.
If you are so inclined, please donate here. Dana-Farber is funneling all funds raised through this page to Breast Cancer research.
