Me with my mom Summer 2011

Me with my mom Summer 2011

I have signed up to be a “ghost member” of a friend’s (Mandie Doak, a co-worker from Illeshiem Germany, now living in Kansas) Relay For Life team. While I won’t be able to attend the event, I will be helping Mandie’s team reach their fundraising goal of $5,000. My personal goal is $200, but I’m hoping to raise WAY MORE! Please help by donating on my page (see link below) or join a Relay For Life team in your local area or as a “Ghost Member” of a friend’s team like me!

Why I’m Participating
I am participating because my life has been heavily effected by Cancer. My mother, Dorothea Ramirez, passed away on July 23, 2014 from gallbladder cancer, and my mother-in-law, Bonnie Mann, is currently undergoing treatment for cancer. While I am unable to attend the actual RFL event, I want to still be active in the fight against cancer and I want to help raise money to help find a cure and help families like mine who are fighting this disease.

Together, we can finish the fight!
