I nominate Jan Stephens-Harris as my HERO. She has bravely been battling breast cancer for two years and through three re-occurrences. She never once has given up. She inspired me to found a group called Pink Pirates which she is the Co- Founder. Our group raises awareness of Breast Cancer by encouraging mammograms early. This was Jan's Dream.
Last year, in four weeks we raised $6,435 and donated it to Sacred Heart Foundation for local women and men to receive free mammograms. We are currently gearing up for our next big fundraising event, which Jan is spearheading. She also takes time from her chemo and radiation treatments to go meet others who have been newly diagnosed to give them hope and encouragement. Jan is the true definition of a Hero & Fighter.
