I walk for our sweet daughter Melissa's legacy who passed away at the age of 36 from metastatic breast cancer a few years ago after a 4-year fight. She left behind her husband and two young daughters ages 4 and 6. For years she counseled patients going through radiation treatments primarily for breast cancer. She was a strong supporter in the fight against breast cancer even before her diagnosis. It included leading a team in breast cancer walks and serving as both a spokesperson and board member.
Last year I was honored to speak at the Opening Ceremony about Melissa and her good works and the importance of raising money to end breast cancer. Because of this support, I have been more involved in the fight by raising funds, advocating for legislative laws to support those impacted by breast cancer and serving on the Komen Leadership Council.
Will you please join me in honoring Melissa's legacy and supporting all those who are impacted by this disease?
Many thanks, John
