“Both my family and my friends have been affected by cancer. Through my involvement with the Society, I want to make a positive difference against cancer, particularly in prevention, with the hope that younger members of our society may never have to fight this disease.”
We realize that our efforts cannot even be compared to what women face when they hear the words ... ‘you have cancer.’
