Name: Becky Walker
Title: Owner/Principal Designer
Company: The Design Studio
Fundraising Goal: $3000
Why are you participating?
My motivation to support and participate in "BigWigs" is for obvious reasons - to help defeat this monster disease, cancer. Louisiana being the number one in breast cancer deaths seems absurd. I want to help reach the goal of reducing the breast cancer death rate by 50% by 2026.
Breast cancer and other cancers have unfortunately affected a number of special family members and dear friends. Some unfortunately loosing their fight to cancer. Often I feel helpless in not being able to "fix" the problem/cure cancer. "BigWigs" is an opportunity to help promote awareness and lessen the lives that would potentially be lost.
I'm sort of a workaholic. I'm super passionate about my industry, design and construction. I love attending social events and supporting the community. I also love creating special events. I enjoy sporting events , especially Catholic High, where my son, Jack, attends (GEAUX BEARS) and of course LSU and Saints events. I love hanging out with my son, Jack, when we go on "Mom-Jack" trips. I love hanging with my husband, LEN, of 22 years at a nice dinner or quick weekend in NOLA, Biloxi or wherever!
What is your greatest achievement?
1. My marriage to Len for 22 years.
2. Being the mother of my son, Jack.
3. Continued growth of my business, The Design Studio.
What brightens your day?
