Dress Rehearsal
November 09, 2017

Here's what I learned at last night's dress rehearsal. First, dancing in that costume is so much fun, especially when I spin around. Second,  See more

THE STORY:

I’m honored to be part of this event and included as a “star” alongside police officers, firefighters and military professionals. 

Like most people, I’ve watched friends and family suffer through breast cancer. My cousin Amelia was diagnosed with stage 3 breast cancer at 41 years old while she was pregnant with her second child. I’m happy to report both her and 4 year old Kateri are doing great. My friend Judy, after 10 years in remission, her breast cancer resurfaced with a vengeance. She was given a terminal diagnosis and preparing for the worst until she was admitted to a study at NIH which literally changed everything. She now has “no evidence of the disease” and is on a mission to educate people and politicians about the importance of research. 

The Pink Fund serves to reduce one stress from breast cancer patients: the financial burden of cost-of-living expenses while going through treatment. When my mom was going through treatment for stage 4 brain cancer, I offered money so she could go to lunch with her sisters or friends after treatments. I know first-hand how important that time was with the people she loved and to not have to worry about the cost. My mom lost her fight 13 years ago and I’m thankful that my small gesture provided her with some comfort.   

I love to dance although I’ve never had to learn a routine with a partner. I’m looking forward to the challenge and to share this moment with friends and family. I will do my best to bring my energetic and competitive self to the dance floor on November 11th. There’s a mirror ball trophy up for grabs for both best dancer and biggest fundraiser. With your help, I might be able to win at least one of these!
