I first became involved with Bite Me Cancer at age 12. In preparation for my Bat Mitzvah, I chose to work with Bite Me Cancer for my "mitzvah" or service project. I raised $1700 for Bite Me Cancer by holding lemonade stands in my community. It was so much fun, I decided to become more involved with the organization and its activities. Nine months later, I was diagnosed with thyroid cancer! My mom had it twice in her life, so I was somewhat familiar with thyroid cancer. Still it was scary. Bite Me Cancer was such an incredible source of support to me and my family. Mrs. Ferraro helped guide us to find just the right doctor. I am now 17 years old, celebrating my fourth year of being cancer free. I still continue to fund raise for BMC as well as donate my time to the organization.
