Terri Clark said, “When someone has cancer, the whole family and everyone who loves them does, too.”
I felt compelled to join Becky’s Warriors to make a difference in the lives of families affected by cancer.
At the age of 18 months, my son, Luke, was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML) and was in remission by the age of two. He’s now 10 and cured! I know how valuable family and friends were to my family during the most vulnerable time in our lives. The smallest gestures mean everything for day to day survival when conquering cancer. I want to be sure to pay back what others showed me during that time in my life by assisting Marian Catholic families.

Becky sure showed us how strong a person could be during her battle! Knowing Becky in high school and being good friends with Amy made Becky’s Warriors the most sensible and meaningful group for me to join. I have had a fun time reconnecting with former classmates and meeting new people since the first golf outing in 2014. I have assisted this amazing collaboration of great people in becoming an organization that has made the difference for families in need.
