Tim and Chelsea are honored to be selected as two BigWigs for this year’s campaign for Susan G. Komen. They are excited to raise awareness and money for women here locally who have battled/are battling breast cancer.
“This is battle that touches all of our lives on some level,” states Tim who’s grandmother and great aunt were both breast cancer survivors in a time where there wasn’t the research there is today. “I’ve had the happiness of watching a co-worker ring the sacred bell being declared cancer free, and the somberness of attending a good friend’s wedding while on a table on the side was a framed picture of his mother who had lost her battle. And everything stopped when it hit even closer to home when we found out my wife’s cousin underwent a double mastectomy after they found a lump.”
“There is something we can all do to help wipe out breast cancer once and for all,” says Chelsea. “This touches everyone’s lives on some level.” Chelsea’s mother lost her aunt to breast cancer. “Since then, we’ve been getting checked every year since we turned 30 yrs. old.” To Chelsea, it is extremely important to take time to help in the fight, and be part of the someday cure for breast cancer.
