The words that you never want to hear come out of a doctor’s mouth are, “I’m sorry, but it’s cancer.” After several family members and good friends had heard those same words I decided to become more aware. I started getting involved with Race for the Cure, The National Ovarian Cancer Coalition, and a wonderful student organization at the University of Iowa called Dance Marathon. Since watching far too many family members battle with cancer, I know that I couldn’t just sit back. I had heard about Bras for the Cause through my aunt, a breast cancer survivor. I sat down with some friends and started brainstorming. We came up with several ideas and decided to do a bra together (we didn’t get to finish so look for it next year!). I still wanted to submit a bra so I put on my thinking cap and got to work! I came up with the slogan, “I know that there may be more fish in the sea, but I know that there is no cancer in these!” I worked my tail off to meet the deadlines and I’m so happy with my first Bras for the Cause creation, hopefully one of many!
