Our family has been raising donations for the American Association for Cancer Research since 2016. Raising donations and awareness for the AACR is so important to our family. As young girl I unfortunately seen the relentlessness of this disease as I watched my grandmother slip away as brain cancer took over her body and her life. Those are memories I will never forget. I have seen it destroy a beautiful young family and leave behind grief and heartache.
Because of the much needed research that the AACR is doing I have also seen countless people beat this horrible disease, sometimes even numerous times. However for me, I want to do everything I can to have my children's last memories of me not be those of cancer taking me over or someone else they love. I raise donations for the AACR so that one day cancer will be something we cure!
