Cancer Schmancer Foundation
July 31, 2009

I was introduced to the Cancer Schmancer Foundation via an Evite to the first event in Chicago. After reading about the Foundation, I knew that I not only wanted to attend the event, I knew that I wanted to become involved with the group, because this group’s mission is working on causes that I have always been passionate about. I had the unique opportunity to be included in dinner with Fran. It was, of course, quite an experience to be able to be “up close and personal” with such a talented, beautiful star, whom I have always admired as “The Nanny”. However, it was even more exciting to sit across the table from such an intelligent and committed women, hearing her speak about her cause. It was truly inspiring to see that such a famous and accomplished actress is willing to give so much of herself to helping others. It would be an honor to have the opportunity to play a role in changing laws and policies that currently allow insurance companies too much power in deciding treatments and diagnostic tests. It would be an honor to have the opportunity to play a role in changing attitudes towards physicians and making sure that all women know that they not only CAN, but that they MUST take charge of their own health. Although I have always felt strongly about these and related issues and I always had the desire to help create change, I have never before come across a group with the same mission.
