Vince and I started fundraising for cancer when he was going through his own cancer fight. My mom lost her third battle with cancer shortly after Vince finished his treatments. I’m fighting cancer because it causes so much pain for a lot of people. It takes loved ones away too soon.

I fight cancer so I can stand by and support my loved ones who have or are currently battling this terrible disease. I also fight for my children, so that one day they will not know the pain and heartache of losing someone to cancer.

I fight cancer to honor friends and family members who battled, are battling, and will battle this deadly disease. Through support, prevention, and research, stories of hope emerge. Those are the stories I want to tell more of.

For many years, I have assisted organizations in raising money to fight cancer. Three years ago, the battle became personal when I was diagnosed with colon cancer. Because of this, I want to more directly assist the Heroes Foundation to bring hope to others.

Fighting cancer is personal for me. I am a cancer warrior - having fought my own fight with bile duct cancer (cholangiocarcinoma) back in 2011, and having recently lost my dad to brain cancer (glioblastomas) in 2018. It’s such a devastating battle that follows the diagnosis, and I am excited to be part of an organization that provides support to other warriors and their caregivers - and that funds the cutting edge research that is so necessary to getting ahead of the disease.

I’m inspired to fight cancer by my brother and sister-in-law, Vince and Cindy. Their commitment to giving back to the cancer community after their successful fight is incredibly motivational. They’ve made such an amazing impact on cancer-fighting efforts in Central Indiana.

After watching my brother’s efforts to beat lymphoma, I’ve come appreciate the long journey ahead of those receiving a cancer diagnosis. I hope to lend my experience in public health to the Foundation’s efforts toward research and prevention to further their goals.
