Angelique shares, “I feel privileged to be part of an organization that allows me to touch the lives of so many people affected by cancer. In my work with children, teens and young adults, I am continually amazed by their resiliency. That they would allow me to bear witness throughout their cancer journey and self-discovery is humbling.”
