Why are you participating?
I have been in the health care industry for close to 25 years as a volunteer. I have watched from afar the strides that have been made to treat cancer, but at the same time the toll it takes not only to the patient but the family and friends alike. You can ask almost anybody and they will say "it has affected me, a family member or a close friend". Well it affected us six years ago when one of our closest friends was diagnosed with cancer. For four years she and her medical team fought the good fight. But two years ago it ended. When I was asked to be a Big Wig I didn't hesitate saying yes because of our friend Joann. We will someday find the cure. My time as a Big Wig is for all the Joanns of the world.
