June is Cancer Survivorship Month. As I shared my story with Bristol Myer Squibb I am reminded of the many cancer survivors who have stories to tell. So to all cancer survivors or anyone that has been diagnosed with cancer I salute you this month.

The Cancer Awareness Network for Children, Inc. (CAN) is a program birthed out of the pain and frustration of my siblings and I as we witnessed our mother’s untimely demise to cancer. As such, we decided to use our frustration and pain to help others. In 1997, we co-founded the Cancer Awareness Network for Children, Inc., a non-profit 501© 3 organization. The “for children” portion of the title in our name reflects my siblings and I as we searched for answers amongst the devastation we experienced. For the past twenty-three years, the CAN has served the community hosting annual quarterly free workshop luncheons at local churches and
community centers throughout the Birmingham metropolitan area.
