On 1/22/ 2003 I was diagnosed with stage 2 breast cancer which forever changed my life! My diagnosis, treatment and survivorship have been an incredible journey. I was blessed with good insurance, excellent doctors, a loving and supportive family and incredible friends that helped me through this journey. I have met some of the most courageous women and men who have also traveled this same path.
Because we still have many who are un-insured or under insured dealing with a breast cancer diagnosis, I continue to advocate through Komen Southwest Florida Affiliate. I joined the affiliate when they were only six months old in Lee and Collier County. I became the first Executive Director of the affiliate and with a wonderful board of directors and fabulous volunteers we made an impact. The affiliate has expanded into Glades, Hendry and Charlotte counties and continues to make a tremendous impact on the uninsured and under insured community dealing with breast cancer.
Please help me reach my $1000 fundraising goal by making a tax-deductible donation today..
Seventy-five percent of our net proceeds stay here in Southwest Florida to help women in need and twenty-five percent is applied towards ground-breaking research. I was a recipient of a drug called Herceptin, Komen resereach dollars helped fund the resereach giving my survivorship a better chance.
