I was a student in the first Teamwork & Collaboration in Health Care class at Stockton University to be partnered with David’s Dream & Believe Cancer Foundation (DDBCF) nonprofit. From the first day, I knew this was a foundation I wanted to support. David’s heartfelt story about his battle with cancer and his dream moving forward along with Danielle’s compassion and desire to see this organization thrive, I knew I wanted to do everything I could to see the foundation, and the partnership with Stockton, be successful.
I like most others have family who has, or is currently, battling a cancer diagnosis. I am proud to be part of a foundation that attempts to lessen the burden of the diagnosis, while providing a support system to show the patient they aren’t alone.
After I graduate from Stockton University in May I plan to pursue a one-year master’s degree, then enter medical school in September 2019. Cancer research is one of my main fields of interest. I attended DDBCF’s Hope Under the Sea Gala in November 2017. Hearing the doctor’s speeches about providing hope to their patients inspired me to make a difference and join the field of medicine.
