“I’ll always be me, but I feel reborn… I feel gratitude toward family and friends who supported me. I didn’t have that level of appreciation before breast cancer.”
PINK FUND INC wrote -
Carol received her Triple Negative / BRCA Positive diagnosis minutes after hosting a Tomosynthesis fundraiser for Beaumont, a cause she started supporting after her sister, Laura Segal, was diagnosed 2 years prior. Laura does not carry the BRCA gene. Carol says, “Had I known then what I know now, I would have been tested.” Although Carol didn’t struggle financially, she is dancing for The Pink Fund because, “I can’t imagine having kids at home, needing to work, and the stress of going to doctors…The financial aspect adds injury to insult.”
Time – 6:30 - 10:00 PM
Location – Silver Gardens Event Center – 24350 Southfield Road, Southfield, MI 48073
