BENEFITING: Gildas Club-Metro Detroit
EVENT DATE: Oct 01, 2016
I learned about Gilda's Club from my friend, Sue Upp, an avid kayaker and breast cancer survivor. She and her daughter have been involved with Gilda's wonderful support programs for years. In March, while working on an art bra to honor Sue at the Bras for a Cause fundraising event, I was diagnosed with breast cancer. Treatment for my ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) included surgery and radiation therapy. My connection with Gilda's became closer and more personal. Now, in addition to honoring Sue, I will also be celebrating four months of cancer-free living as I model " Kayak the Lily Pads" during the Bras for a Cause event. Thanks for supporting me and Gilda's!
