Title: Director of Construction
Fundraising Goal: $5,000
My family and I have been supporting Komen and breast cancer research for two decades. We have prayed and supported many close friends and family who are survivors or have lost loved ones after hard fought battles. Having seen the suffering and heartache that comes with treatment, I realize the importance of Komen’s work in education, research and detection.
I’m honored to represent Komen Charlotte as a Pink Tie Guy, in its efforts to fundraise and increase awareness to ensure that that we can one day eradicate cancer in all its forms.
Junto con mi familia, hemos estado apoyando a Komen y el avance de cura para cáncer de seno durante dos décadas. Hemos rezado y apoyado a familiares y amigos cercanos que son sobrevivientes o que han perdido a sus seres queridos después de batallas difíciles. Conociendo el dolor y sufrimiento que viene con tratamiento, me doy cuenta de la gran importancia de Komen en la educación, investigación y detección del cáncer de seno. Tengo el honor de representar a Komen Charlotte como un “Pink Tie Guy”, en sus esfuerzos para recaudar fondos y aumentar la conciencia para asegurar que un día podamos erradicar el cáncer de toda forma.
