Please join me in promoting awareness and support of ongoing research that will bring us closer to finding a cure for breast cancer. My family has a history of breast cancer; my great grandmother was diagnosed when she was 60 years old, and my grandmother and aunt are survivors both living cancer–free for over ten years. In May 2015, my mom was diagnosed with a rare form of breast cancer. This diagnosis would have been terminal for her just 15 short years ago, but thanks to the marvels of modern medicine she receives a drug called Herceptin. This drug saved her life. This is why I’m passionate about my project. We need to support more research to advance drug treatments that save lives.
I’m partnering with the C3 For Change as a Teen Ambassador for the ONE WORLD. ONE CAUSE.™ fundraising initiative to raise money for Nova Southeastern University’s new Cell Therapy Institute’s Director, Dr. Jean J. Latimer.
