Why are you a cancer advocate?
As a 24 year breast cancer survivor and the daughter of parents lost to cancer, I feel I need to “pay it forward” and do what I can to promote awareness and to hopefully provide hope to newly diagnosed patients.
Why is being an ACS CAN volunteer important to you?
It is important to hold our legislators accountable for various public health issue decisions, and, through our advocacy, we are able to keep these issues in the forefront.
Why should others in your community get involved in ACS CAN?
I always have believed people should “be part of the solution,” and ACS CAN provides us that opportunity.
