I live, I work, I love our community. Giving back to the community is a large part of who I am. Strong neighborhoods are built on solid support. I am passionate about committing time, talents and funds to people, projects and foundations in need. Maybe it is somewhat selfish because when I give back, that is when I feel the most fulfilled.

Finally, I received the treatment I needed and I feel compelled to help others.

To learn more about the signs of this disease go to (https://www.knowbrca.org/). I donate my time and money to this cause. I help to spread the word through multimedia sites and helped bring together a first of its kind, in Austin TX, a Ovarian Cycle Event in 2013 bring over $35,000 in one day. I still donate every year and will continue to do so until this Cancer is destroyed. http://www.ocrf.org/
