Why are you participating?
Sarah Baker is so excited to be a 2019 Susan G Komen Big Wig! Annihilating Breast Cancer is something that she is very passionate about. Her Mom is a two time breast cancer survivor. She will never forget where she was the day that her Mom called her at Virginia Tech to let her know about her diagnosis. The fear that went through her heart those 16 years ago isn’t something that can easily be forgotten. Her Mom’s mother had died of breast cancer before Sarah was born, and was diagnosed at right around the same age as her Mom. By the grace of God, and the power of medicine Sarah’s Mom was healed, TWICE! And has been in remission for almost 15 years. Since then her Mom has been very involved in the Survivors community, and has inspired Sarah to get involved as well.
Sarah lives in Roanoke with her husband, Jay, and her two boys. Carson who is 11, and Thomas who just turned 3! She is a member of the Junior League of Roanoke Valley, and currently serves on their Governance Board. Sarah has worked for Ferguson, Bath, Kitchen & Lighting Gallery for the past 13 years, and loves being a part of the residential construction community in Roanoke!
