What is the charitable cause you are most passionate about and why?

I am passionate about children cancer because it is fundamentally different from adult cancers. Children who suffer from cancer cannot fight for themselves and they rely heavily on friends and family to advocate for them. It is also heartbreaking to see parents go through a life-changing and overwhelming process. It's a strenuous journey for them when you think about it and as a mom, I deeply empathize for them too.

It takes a village to take care of a child with cancer, a team made up of board-certified doctors is just one group. They also need a passionate and compassionate community who are focused on every aspect of a child's life that is impacted by their disease and I'm here to be part of that.

Why do you give through the CFC?

There are many different charitable causes that I care deeply about and I'd like to do my part and help.

How do contributions through the CFC help your cause?

My contributions helps the different nonprofit organizations meet their mission and I get to see the impact including, the advances in childhood cancer treatment and care, supporting families and other entities, raising awareness and much more!
