What matters to me

Family and living my best life.

What inspires me

The success stories of others. Especially the stories about people who beat the odds. Music inspires me too. Strong women inspire me amongst them are; Oprah Winfrey and Barbara Streisand and Fran Drescher and Suzanne Somers and Barbra Walters and Joy Behar and so many more that I can’t possibly list them all here. Last but not least, the death of my sister inspires me to be better and to do better and let her live through me.

Diabetes Hands Foundation
February 11, 2011

I just came across this website and I have to say I am so happy to see that there are sites like this out there. My sister died at a young age due to complications of diabetes. There weren’t sites like this when she was alive. I believe it would’ve made such a difference in the quality of her life to be able to be part of a community that allowed her to comfortably be a diabetic. Now that I’ve found it I must volunteer!

The Great!

Just knowing that there is support for those with diabetes.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Nothing yet but volunteer

Cancer Schmancer Foundation
February 11, 2011

I don’t have a story to tell and thank goodness I don’t. Thanks to the Cancer Schmancer Foundation I can continue to gain knowledge about cancer and possible prevention tips that could save my life.



An example of how this foundation has helped me is that I recently found out that BPA’s found in certain plastics and metal containers can be a contributing factor to reproductive and developmental issues.



One could argue that this information is all over the internet and all you have to do is research it, but, I wouldn’t have thought to research it, so, the only reason I have this information is because Cancer Schmancer thought of it for me/the subscriber and brought it directly to me via their emails. As a result I am now replacing certain plastic products with a safer product and am cautious when using the ones I’ve chosen to keep.



Additionally, the Cancer Schmancer Foundation’s primary goal is to educate and prevent. Other Foundations tend to raise and contribute money towards a cure. I think this is great too, but, given the choice I focus on preventing illnesses.

I'm not sure that there are any changes to be made. If I get an opportunity to work with CSF I would merely continue to help promote their cause.

MY ROLE:
General Member of the Public & I've done a lot of volunteer work, but I'm submitting this specifically to assist the Foundation in getting funds.
