Greetings to all, my name is Angel Potts, I’m a transfer student at UMUC studying to get my degree in healthcare management with a concentration in (Kinesiology).Growing up was hard for me. I lost my mother at a young age due to heart failure (heart disease).
Cancer and heart disease are linked by much more than the number of people that they affect. We know that people who survive cancer are more likely to go on to develop heart disease, partly because of the drugs used to treat them.
This project has given me an opportunity to encourage those that have just received a diagnosis as well as salute those who have overcome many health related obstacles. I am organizing a cancer awareness event (Let your faith be bigger than your fear) to raise awareness for not only the most common types of cancers, but the ones rarely mentioned or talked about.
I plan on bringing attention to over 24 different types of cancers while broadcasting further knowledge, including the colors of each cancer and even some personal stories of survivors to everyone. We will do all this while putting together this groundbreaking event which will consist of professional speakers, fashion models walking a runway, and other live entertainment.
All of the proceeds/profits will be donated to Children’s Hospital to continue into research for finding a cure for cancer. We are asking for your support in this event to help fund. We would greatly appreciate it if you could donate and help partner with us to help spread awareness for this critical cause.
