I got involved with the Greater Boca Cancer Unit because growing up my mother was Vice President of Cancer Care. Unfortunately, she died at 51 from pancreatic cancere. I am now at a point in my life that I can give back and hopefully make a difference in my efforts with this organization. I am now involved in a motivation group, to brain storm, and move forward into the future to find a cure for this disease.
I became involved in the Pap Corps many years ago after losing family members and friends to Cancer. After being President of the Greater Boca Raton Unit I was elected to serve as Education VP. The more I found out about the wonderful medical breakthroughs at Sylvester the more I was determined to help raise funds so a cure for cancer can be realized in our lifetime. With hundreds of clinical trials and cutting edge research msny "modern miracles" are being performed and it is because of our dedicated 21,000+ volunteers. As a "grass roots' organization we have raised between 3-4 million dollars in the past years. We are able to donate 98% of the monies raised to Sylvester for research. As a perk of membership, our members are given VIP tratment at Sylvester and the University of Miami Hospital. We have 52 units in Palm Beach, Broward and Dade counties and our fund raising activities are very popular. I am proud to be part of this wonderful charity.
