Several years ago a special friend invited me to attend a meeting of Pap Corps members. It was such a warm and welcoming group of women! After hearing about all the wonderful ways the Greater Broward Pap Corps chapter helps raise money for cancer research, I knew I wanted to help fight cancer and be part of these dynamic h...

In 2012, a few years after a close friend of mine passed away from Ovarian Cancer, I decided to join Pap Corps. Some friends had taken prominent roles in the organization, effectively promoting its mission of funding research for all types of cancer. But, I learned quickly, this organization was not just about fundraising:...

I initially joined the Greater Broward Pap Corps to meet people in my new community whom I had heard were active, interesting, and involved.  What I quickly learned was that Pap Corp members are all of the above and so much more.  Many members, like myself, have lost a close family member or friend to cancer and were looki...

In the four ye...

Many years ago two of my childhood friends passed away from cancer. Some of my dear relatives were also victims of this dreaded disease. "Raise money for cancer research" was added to my bucket list. When I retired I chose the Pap Corps as the organization I wanted to join because most of the money raised goes for finding...

I joined the Greater Broward Chapter of The Pap Corps in 2011.  Debbie Feldman, my cousin, was a member at the time and she invited me to a meeting.  I was very impressed with what I heard about this organization but especially with the fact that a large percent of the money collected goes directly to Sylvester Comprehensi...

Hi, my name is Michele McMahon. I joined the Greater Broward Pap Corps because I am so passionate about not losing people I love anymore! Over the past 6-8 years, I have lost a cousin, uncle and 2 close friends. I’ve spent the last 15 years as an active PTA member and held several different board positions. My boys are gro...

I joined the Greater Broward Chapter not really understanding the power I had within me to make a difference.  Once involved with new and old friends, we all became a group with a common goal:  to fight cancer, ALL cancers, in a fun and meaningful way.  Being a part of The Pap Corps has encouraged me to give more of myself...
