I was born and raised in Granite Falls, North Carolina. I graduated from South Caldwell High School and obtained a B.S. in Criminal Justice from Lees-McRae College. I have two older brothers who have given the pleasure of me being an uncle.
I love to volunteer for The American Cancer Society, travel and spend time with family and friends.
While breast cancer has not impacted myself personally, I am a cancer survivor. I am a metastatic melanoma survivor. My journey with cancer began in 2012 when I had it surgically removed, then had 25 radiation treatments followed by a year of chemo.
Although breast cancer has not personally impacted myself, it did show its ugly face to my mother. My mother lost her battle to metastatic breast cancer in January 2020. I am most excited about being involved with the RMWP campaign as this will be another way I can honor my mother. Breast cancer affects everyone – it doesn’t matter if you’re a man or a woman. That’s why I’m stepping up to fight breast cancer with all I have. I’m able to make a difference within my community, I believe I have an obligation to do so. By raising money and awareness through RMWP, I’m helping to save more lives from breast cancer.
