Why are you a cancer advocate?
Being an advocate in the fight against cancer allows me to be a part of something larger than myself. I can use my time to fight for good in the world, and I will hopefully have a positive impact on the lives of others.
Why should others in your community get involved in ACS CAN?
People should get involved because they, too, can have a positive impact on the lives of others. By simply signing petitions, writing letters, or participating in other ACS CAN initiatives, they can be a part of the larger picture to better the lives of all people.
What is something unique about you and your state that you would like to share?
While we may be a small team, we are a dedicated one! Our core volunteers are truly some of the best in the country.
