GLEASONS GIVE A KID A DREAM wrote -
Powerful, artistic, and entrepreneurial, Rebecca Weiss is a woman who spins her dreams and goals into reality, successfully turning her two passions into businesses.
On the one hand a photographer whose work and gift for personal connections continues to drive in referrals and on the other hand, along with friend Danielle Lacy, Rebecca launched a prenatal fitness company.
Some of her greatest accomplishments include those two businesses, but above and beyond that, her family is truly the center of her universe and she strives to be a role model to her amazing children.
She’s a strong woman molded by the resolve of a father-in-law who raised seven children after losing his wife to breast cancer and a mother who beat Myelodysplastic Syndrome.
Because of her first hand dealings with cancer, Rebecca tries to support every cancer organization she can in order to help individuals fight the most important battle of their lives, so it’s particularly gratifying that Occupy Cancer is a beneficiary of this fundraiser.
Aside from giving back by way of getting in the ring for Fighters4Life, she likes to do so in the form of funding people and their causes. That’s in addition to donating her time to support charities that are closest to her heart as well as being registered on numerous bone marrow transplant lists.
Clearly she finds giving back to be vital and her willingness to do so just comes naturally. All in all it’s the personal connections and making a difference in the lives of others that really motivates Rebecca.
