Support Me

Thank you for visiting my fundraising page! I am excited to support the V Foundation for Cancer Research, an organization committed to declaring Victory Over Cancer®. 

My fight with cancer started 10 years ago and thankfully ended soon after. I am organizing this fund raiser to celebrate this milestone and remember those who are still fighting this terrible disease.
