Her reason to FLIP Cancer:

My mom, who always stayed active and maintained a healthy diet, was diagnosed with Triple Negative Breast Cancer, and she passed away in January 2013. She was only 53 years old. Now, I run with purpose, more so than ever before. I have a ton of energy and I like to think that this transcends to those I connect with. Additionally, July 21st is my 35th birthday, and I would like to celebrate with acts of service.

Her reason to FLIP Cancer: 

Cancer has taken so much from me, but I’ve been able to draw strength from my running to help my soul heal. Nothing can bring back those we’ve lost, but hopefully events like this one can help others who are fighting toward more tomorrows.

His reason to FLIP Cancer:

I have several aunts who have battled breast cancer and my father along with an uncle both fought prostate cancer. I took part in a grad school internship that researched different techniques to battle prostate cancer on the lab side and the social side, so I’ve always been willing to do my part in order to eradicate it off the face of the Earth.

Her reason to FLIP Cancer: 

Cancer prevention holds a place near and dear to my heart. Over 50% of my family members have suffered from cancer. I think that is the main reason why I am so passionate about preventing it. I am a nurse, personal trainer and online health and fitness coach.

Her reason to FLIP Cancer: 

Everyone has known a relative, friend, or coworker with cancer. I am no exception. The prevention of a disease is the ultimate goal. It is important for me to do anything that I can to help prevent cancer!

Her reason to FLIP Cancer: 

I am grateful and inspired by the many opportunities to learn and share about cancer prevention through FLIP Now. Bonding with members of my community through exercise and learning about risk factors has a ripple effect when we share them with loved ones and friends.

Her Reason to FLIP Cancer: 

As a medical provider, I talk about cancer prevention every day! Everyone has the ability to do their part in participating in routine screenings, like cervical and breast, when it is recommended. It is also important to be educated in healthy lifestyle habits that can help decrease one’s risk. I love being able to help others understand the importance of cancer prevention.

Her Reason to FLIP Cancer: 

Cancer has had such a profound impact of my life from my mother being diagnosed at a young age to an aunt fighting the same battle with breast cancer twice. I believe that at some point cancer impacts everyone’s life and through fighting together (because it really does take a tribe) we are able to battle cancer into remission.

His reason to FLIP Cancer: 

Cancer prevention is important to me because cancer has taken the lives of many great people. I want to do my part in doing whatever it takes to find a cure. Cancer sucks!

His reason to FLIP Cancer: Prevention and discussion should be important to all of us.  My motivation comes from a living, breathing time machine I call my son.  It’s never too late to start making better decisions about your health, and it’s never too early to have conversations with your children.  Find your passion and share the experience

Her reason to FLIP Cancer: Cancer prevention is important to me because my father passed away from a rare form of cancer, Thymic Carcinoma, in 1992. Although his cancer could not have been prevented by his lifestyle choices, I believe that choosing to live a healthy lifestyle could not only prevent cancer, but it could also help you fight cancer. He was a fighter, and he fought hard until the end. To be a part of an organization that promotes and encourages people to live a preventative, beneficial lifestyle is a privilege.
