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 am a plastic and reconstructive surgeon, and I am dancing to honor all of the brave women I have had the honor of caring for during and after their battles with breast cancer. I'm also dancing for my incredible children – Hudson and Harper – because I want to show them that when you truly care about something, it’s ALWAYS worth giving everything you’ve got.
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.
