10 years ago, at the ripe old age of 26, I was diagnosed for the first time with breast cancer. Two and a half years ago (5.5 weeks before the expected birth of my daughter), I was diagnosed again. This time it's metastatic (it lives in some bones and my liver) and without a cure, it's never going away. I'm raising money for Stand Up To Cancer https://standuptocancer.org/ because 100% of donations received from the public support Stand Up To Cancer’s collaborative cancer research programs. They have unique research models that are expertly designed to initiate collaboration, accelerate the pace of cancer research, and clear the way for high-impact breakthroughs. I need these breakthroughs. I need Stand up To Cancer to stand up for me, to stand up for my kids, to stand up for my loved ones, and those I don't know. To stand up for everyone affected by cancer. To stand up for us, because we need you to. Because it matters. So if you can, please take the time to donate to this incredible organization.
