Oh so fun…Now I really get to help cure breast cancer

I just got accepted to the Susan G. Komen Advocates in Science Program. I’m not exactly sure what’s involved but their goals for the program are pretty simple and well defined:

“to ensure that a strong, well informed advocate’s perspective is integrated into scientific dialogue, as well as the policy and funding decisions impacting our progress toward discovering and delivering the cures.”

I’m excited and honored to be part of this program. More importantly, I can now truly have an impact on the future of breast cancer beyond fundraising, beyond mentoring and beyond raising awareness.

Can’t wait to get started.
