"...I felt the need to help however I could..."

“I have met a lot of breast cancer survivors through my involvement with “Relay For Life” I began participating during my freshman year of high school in 2004. Being that statistically one in eight women will have invasive breast cancer at some point in their life; I felt the need to help however I could. Another program I have been helping with is the “One Degree Program” hits on the idea that most people will have a friend or family member that will have cancer during their lifetime. All these experiences have inspired me to pursue becoming a doctor in the future.”
