My co-worker, my friend, one of the many who inspire me to do more and raise my voice for those who need one. 'Being strong doesn’t just mean physically battling the disease. I’m learning it’s mentally fighting, too." Nobody fights like Danielle and I'm proud to be in the trenches with her and so many others.  Let's beat this thing!!!
Mentally battling colorectal cancer means not letting yourself think about the "what ifs" and "why mes."

Research Grants - potentially saving lives, creating jobs, giving people hope.  So proud to be contributing in some small way.
A researcher from Children's Hospital Boston received our Lisa Fund grant - an award funding late-stage colon and rectal cancer research.

We may have danced the HAPPY song but we kicked some serious BUTT spreading awareness and hopefully saving lives at a National level. The FightCRC #ConC2014  advocates slammed this one way out of the house!

Story
Tagline
It's OK, I'm a limo driver
Introduction
I'm currently part of the 99% but trying to make the world a better place. I like to think, enjoy a good brew or vino, I'm engaged and involved with a passion for life - I vote, I love music but can't play, unless you count Guitar Hero or Rock Band, then I'm awesome at Bass - I can hold my own at expert level.  Did I mention I have a sense of humor?
Bragging rights
I saw the President from a distance, so I have that going for me.
