Most of us know someone who has been affected by cancer. I have known many who have bravely fought this disease, but I never expected that person to be me. In July 2014, just days after my 28th birthday, I was diagnosed with colon cancer. The next eight months of my life were consumed with surgery and chemotherapy, but today I could not be happier to say that I am more than four years cancer-free. I can say that because of an amazing team of doctors and the love and support of my family and friends. Today, I hope that I can give back by through education, awareness and fundraising to hopefully allow others to have the positive prognosis that I have had. Funds raised through Get Your Rear in Gear - Green Bay stay in our local community and support this personal mission of mine.
