How did you get involved with HFC?
I was inspired by a friend’s battle with cancer last year. Particularly her strength, positive attitude, and selflessness. When anyone asked how they could help her, she encouraged everyone to help out Heroes for Children instead. I can now see how great it is to have a support network for cancer, but even more important is a support network for pediatric cancer.
I became more involved in the organization to help promote that September is Childhood Cancer Awareness. It would be so great if childhood cancer one day has the same recognition as Breast Cancer does in October. That's just me dreaming big!
Do you have any kids and/or pets?
I have two puppies.
From looking at you, no one would guess that…..
I love puppies and children.
Favorite place to eat:
What’s on your book shelf?
Edward Tufte’s Envisioning Information. It's the techie in me- I like graphics, charts, and spreadsheets!
What’s in your iPod/CD changer?
A variety of country, alternative, and rock songs; never liked disco : )
Who’s your hero?
Anyone struggling with childhood cancer or in the armed forces. I celebrate them with gold and yellow ribbons in support.
