I am dancing with the Stars of Charlotte because I am inspired by the work Carolina Breast Friends does through the Pink House, and I want to raise money to support their mission. You can help me by voting with your charitable dollars!
I, myself, am a breast cancer Survivor. What better way to celebrate my 40th birthday and my 5-year cancer-free anniversary than to give back to those who so kindly and generously helped me in my greatest time of need.
I am dancing for my Mom, who was diagnosed with breast cancer when she was 41. I am also dancing for Elizabeth, and for Laura, and Barbara, and Shannon, and all the Survivors who have journied with me.
Most importantly I am dancing for me! I have spent my life sitting or standing and watching others dance. I can not wait to feel the emotion that will come with learning to dance. My Dad is an amazing dancer who I know will be in the audience watching me with great pride. Dad was there to empty my drains, put ointment on my incisions, and even help me bathe. My thank you to him is to go on that stage, and dance like no one is watching!
Every donation you make through this page gets me closer to being this year's fundraising winner--but, more importantly, it supports the services Carolina Breast Friends provides for those with breast cancer in the greater Charlotte community. So, I'm very excited to participate in this years event! How much can we raise together?
Thank you in advance for your generosity! It matters.
