Become the Change

After a productive day in the Loop, I was walking home from the train on Monday. It was a gorgeous day, one of those days that makes you forget that you live in the Midwest for a minute. It was borrowed from Southern California and transplanted some 2,000 miles away, smack dab into the Chicago suburbs.

What You Really Need

I was honored to be the guest speaker at the 2016 Becky’s Warriors Golf Outing and Dinner Fundraiser.  I am now a member of the Golf Outing Committee for this year’s event and excited to help the organization raise funds for others like me and my family.  I’d like to share with you my speech from last year’s event in hopes that anyone reading this will truly understand the impact this organization can have on not only those fighting cancer but the family members that fight alongside them….

All it takes is 1°…

In August of 2006, I was working my way through a branch office of a brokerage firm in Boca Raton, Florida.

I was going about my day, knocking on doors, shaking hands, generally just trying to do my job. More info

Why I help on the Becky’s Warriors team

by Missy Day –

Losing a loved one to cancer is devastating.

I did not know Becky in high school. I graduated in 1994 with her sister, Amy, but did not know her well. You may be wondering why I would agree to help a family I didn’t know until I first helped with the golf outing in 2014.

by Amy Eaton Seymour –

For me personally, “Becky’s Warriors” are the wonderful people who supported Becky during her oncology battle.

Why I wanted to get involved

by Tracy Patrizi VanderLuitgaren, 1994 graduate –

When I was in high school, a dear friend and Marian Catholic Community student was diagnosed with liver cancer.

At such a young age, it was very hard to comprehend why someone so young could be faced with such a terrible disease. More info

Why I felt so passionate about starting Becky’s Warriors

by Charles “Chuck” Hicks, 1994 graduate –

I saw first-hand with family and friends the devastating effects of cancer.

My friend Mike Indovina lost his battle to lung cancer in 2012. Back in 2012, I partnered with another cancer organization to raise funds and learned that the majority of the money went to research. I knew I wanted to do more. More info
