Why are you participating? I am very excited to be participating in the Susan G. Komen Big Wig campaign. I recently moved back to the Tri- Cities Area. I grew up in this area and am a proud graduate of Quillen College of Medicine - 3rd graduating class! I have practiced Oncology for 26 years between Johnson City, Asheville and Kentucky. I am excited to now be part of the Wellmont Cancer Institute Team in Bristol and Norton. I have taken care of innumerable breast cancer patients over the years. Many have been close personal friends. The advances I have seen in breast cancer diagnosis and treatment in my career have been amazing. With the speed of research I actually believe there will be a cure in my lifetime. Our donations- doesn't matter how small, may give someone that life-saving mammogram or give researchers that needed money to find the next big advance in treatment. It's real - 1 out of 8 women are impacted, men can get breast cancer too. I can't help thinking when I am sitting around with family and friends - next time it could be my mother, my daughters or even me. Let's all pitch in and make this the greatest campaign ever - have fun, give to your favorite Big Wig but most importantly know your donation is making a difference - helping so many impacted by this cancer.
