Why are you participating?
My motivation to participate comes from my family. My Grandmother had breast cancer of which she survived by getting the proper treatment and medical care. My Grandmother and Grandfather were farmers and lived in a very rural area of Southern Illinois. Having access to care is so critical. The Susan G. Komen Foundation's mission is to "meet the most critical needs in our communities and investing in breakthrough research." The is so important in Louisiana as a majority of the dollars stay local to support women in our communities bout in urban and rural parishes.
I am a twin - I have a twin sister Stephanie, who lives in St. Louis. I was a tap dancer for over 25 years, and enjoy working out - especially at Orange Theory!
