ABCD became an integral part of my life when I found myself in the wrong place at the right time. I was at a crossroads in my life, uncertain as to what direction my life should take. Unforeseen circumstances took me to ABCD, introduced me to its founder, Melodie Wilson and found me interviewing for a job that has given me a true sense of purpose. Six years later I am still with ABCD and still feeling that sense of fulfillment as I help to make the breast cancer journey for those diagnosed less lonely. ABCD's model of free, personalized, one-to-one mentoring is unique in that it matches participants with mentors (all of whom have taken the breast cancer journey, are at least one year out from treatment and have been certified through ABCD's training program) who are similar both diagnostically and personally. This year over 4,000 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in the State of Wisconsin alone. ABCD's mission is to expand its reach and offer its services to a far larger number of those affected by breast cancer as well as their families and friends. I am proud to be a part of an organization that truly does make a difference. In the words of ABCD's founder, "there is much work yet to be done."
