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 looking for ways that were both meaningful and proactive to give back. It’s easy to write a check or send a tribute, but for a more sustainable approach to finding a cure there seems no better way than to support the nationally renowned University of Miami Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center right here in our own backyard.
After my initial “getting to know you” lunch with our current President, Lori Margolis, I knew this organization was the fit I was looking for. Passionate, caring, intelligent women, stimulating speakers, fun events and the will and drive to raise money and awareness to eradicate cancer. Through research and the dedicated physicians at Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center and chapters like ours perhaps one day we will no longer have to fear this dreaded disease.
Educating myself, giving back, great people and good times throughout the year doesn’t get better than this.
