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: it was about camaraderie and providing one another with support. For many of us and in different ways, cancer has afflicted our lives. I love being part of this group because we work and fight together for a common cause.
