LGH TeamWalk at the UMass Lowell Hockey Game

On Friday, January 22, I had the wonderful opportunity of attending the UMass Lowell vs. Merrimack College hockey game on behalf of Lowell General Hospital's TeamWalk for CancerCare. I was so honored to be asked to walk out with Bev, a two-time Breast Cancer Survivor for the puck drop at the beginning of the game. Representing TeamWalk is representing these amazing survivors, those that have lost their battle with cancer, and the amazing opportunities that Lowell General Hospital's TeamWalk provides for cancer patients and their families. This is one of many events that I will take part in as the Honorary Chair for the 2010 TeamWalk. I am looking forward to the March 27 Open House for Lowell General Hospital's Cancer Center! Thank you again to Andrea, Ellen, and the rest of the Philanthropy Office at LGH for welcoming me into your family, and for giving me the honor of representing LGH and TeamWalk!

Greater Billerica Relay for Life Kick-Off

I had the wonderful opportunity to tell my mom's story about her bouts with Ovarian and Breast Cancer tonight at the Greater Billerica Relay for Life Kick-Off Meeting.

Tomorrow night I will speak at the Tyngsborough Relay for Life Kick-Off. Thank you to Kristin Scott for inviting me to both events. For more information on how to get involved in the Relay for Life, please visit the American Cancer Society to find an event near you.

Lowell General Hospital's Team Walk 2010

I have been honored yet again and asked to be the Honorary Chair for the 2010 Team Walk with Lowell General Hospital! The event will take place in Lowell, MA on May 16, 2010.
Since it’s inception in 2000, TeamWalk has raised over $3.5 million and more than 10,000 people have received assistance. Money generated by TeamWalk enables Lowell General Hospital to provide help in many forms. It funds innovative support programs for patients, their families and caregivers; financial assistance for medications; and transportation to and from treatments. TeamWalk dollars help provide workshops and classes to help people feel better, build confidence and instill hope throughout their battle with cancer.

I am looking forward to being the face and voice to promote this event and to take part in it again this year! See you all on May 16!

Things To Look Forward To!

As 2010 has begun, I am thankful for the opportunities that await me. This coming weekend I will be fitted at David's Bridal in Nashua, NH for two bridal shows that I will be modeling in sponsored by The New Hampshire Wedding Magazine on January 24 and February 21.

On January 21, I will be a speaker at the American Cancer Society's Kick Off Meeting for the Tyngsborough Relay for Life, which I have also created a team called Queens for Relay. I hope that as the months go by leading up to the June 12 event, my team and event will grow larger and more successful. I will be speaking about my mom who I lost 2 years ago to Breast Cancer, and hope that her story will educate and make others aware of early detection.

On February 6, I will be working with the Habitat for Humanity of Greater Lowell to help build a house in Bedford, MA. This will be a wonderful opportunity to help a family in need. I have been lucky to join up with Miss Massachusetts USA, Lacey Wilson and Miss Massachusetts Teen USA, Brooke Bibeault to work on this project. We will also be participating in the "Women Build Week" for Habitat the week of May 1-9.

I will also be attending the Miss New Hampshire Outstanding Teen Pageant on January 17. This pageant is the Little Sister Pageant to the Miss New Hampshire America Scholarship Program.

March 28 is also an important date for me. I am working with the Lowell Devils Hockey Organization on selling tickets to their game which is dedicated to the Ladies! A portion of ticket sales will be going to the Mary Kay Ash Foundation to help end women's cancers as well as to help fight domestic abuse. Please visit the official site to learn more about this wonderful foundation:

I know that there will be so many wonderful opportunities that will come my way througout the year, and I can't wait to experience them all and share them with you.

Happy New Year and here's to a wonderful 2010!
