My experience as a two-time colon cancer survivor inspired me to establish, We Stand Together, Inc. (“WST”), a nonprofit organization built on Standing Together to make a difference not only in our communities but also in the entire world.
On March 11, 2015, I was diagnosed with Stage IV Colon Cancer. Cancer was something I was well aware of, and through my event planning company, N.U.E. Event Planning & Services (“NUE Events”), I became an advocate in the fight against cancer. NUE Events has used its passion and creativity for the past six years to honor and celebrate cancer survivors by hosting the “Forever Pink Soiree” Breast Cancer Awareness Charity Gala, benefiting organizations that are committed to helping with funding for research, prevention, screening and treatment of Breast Cancer and all other types of cancer.
After going through my personal journey with Colon Cancer, my devotion to bring awareness to health disparities, hope to families, mentor our youth and to impact the community through philanthropy work became one of high priority. It is my hope that the WST organization continues to inspire lifelong learning, advance knowledge, and strengthen communities in the entire world.
