Cancer made its presence known in my life when my best friend, Jennifer Haynie was diagnosed with Osteosarcoma, a rare children’s bone cancer. Jen was diagnosed one month before we graduated and passed away in May of 2008 just over a year from her diagnosis. The impact her passing made in my life, and in our community inspired me to get involved in the fight against cancer.
I joined YTAC after college and am in awe of those who dedicate their lives to finding a cure. I am very blessed to be a part of this organization and can’t wait to see what’s in store for us in the years to come.
