I am now a 9 yr survivor and am grateful to the hard work and dedication of the CT BHI team. This organization works hard to raise money for breast cancer research efforts in CT. I have had the pleasure of walking in several of the races and served as Race Chair previously. There are many ways to become involved with this outstanding organization whether it is as a volunteer for one of their events or as a participant. They are a wonderful group of people to work with as a volunteer; and I appreciate the efforts that honor breast cancer survivors, remember those who have passed away from the disease, and strive to find a cure. You can't help but get energized by the stories, passion and purpose! Thank you CTBHI! With love and respect, Susan Lane D'Apice
