I lost my mom to lung cancer 9 years ago this July. It was sudden and unexpected and changed the course of my life and my family’s life forever. As deeply heartbroken and lost as I was during that time in my life, I knew that I always wanted to find a way to give back, to join a mission and movement that solely focused on raising awareness and creating change, so that we could move toward one day bringing an end to the fight against cancer.I know my Mom is our families guide through this life. I continually recognize and feel that she is there for all of our special moments, occasions, or when an amazing opportunity presents itself out of the blue and it feels like I just got a small wink from her to me, and this feels like one of them.
Stand up to Cancer (SU2C) and Beautycounter have come together to honor all who have been touched by cancer. I am using this platform to raise awareness and funds for SU2C, who have set out to generate awareness, educate the public on cancer prevention, and help more people diagnosed with cancer become long-term survivors.
Stand Up To Cancer’s (SU2C) innovations lead to better cancer prevention, diagnosis and treatment, which means that we can help save lives now!! More than 180 clinical trials have been funded by SU2C, and over $480 million has been pledged to the work of more than 1,500 scientists. You can learn more about the great work that SU2C does at StandUpToCancer.org.
Every contribution, no matter how large or how little, makes a real difference in SU2C’s effort to make all cancer patients long-term cancer survivors. Please join us in helping to bring awareness to the disease, the value of research, and the people it impacts!
Thank you in advance for your generous support! We're all in this together!
