At the tender age of 10, I witnessed first hand the immense pain my mother felt when my grandmother lost her fight with breast cancer. The technology and healthcare that was available in her small hometown in Colombia was lacking. Unfortunately, she did not have access to the state-of-the-art facilities that are now available or were accessible in another country. I cannot help but to think that if she was able to be diagnosed sooner, if she was given the opportunity to fight with the assistance of medicine and science, perhaps she may still be with us. My grandmother fought valiantly, however, the cancer took her much too soon, and robbed me of the opportunity to learn from her and absorb the wisdom she shared. To this day, sadly, there is no known cure for cancer. Women of all ages, races, ethnicities, and socio-economic statuses are fighting this fight; Cancer does not discriminate.
It has been a passion of mine to give back to the community, and supporting the brave women engaging in this fight against cancer is something I hold dear. As a CPA, I have been working with nonprofits for 10 years and counting. By serving on the board for BSNCF, I hope to be a fierce advocate and supporter of the incredible women tackling their diagnoses and going through the treatments.
