BigWig Fun Fact: The best advice that I have ever received is to never, ever give up!
Why are you participating?
I want to do my part in raising awareness and funds for breast cancer patient services. During this past year two of my dear friends, Teena Ahuja and Alice Browder, were diagnosed with breast cancer. They didn't choose this battle. However, they are fighting it with extreme courage, strength and determination. Throughout their breast cancer journey, they have taught me just how important the power of a positive attitude is and exactly what bravery truly means. They inspire me every day.
This fight is about coming together rather than standing alone. It is about choosing to see rather than turning a blind eye. It is also about choosing courage, compassion, and hope. I am proud to be a BigWig to help spread this message for Teena, for Alice and for everyone in this battle.
