It is very rare that you meet a person that hasn’t been effected some how by cancer. In my case I’ve been effected strongly by the disease with two people that I love. I lost my grandmother to breast cancer in 1991 after years of fighting. I also lost my stepfather in 2005 to lung cancer after a 14 month fight. Profits with a Purpose is dedicated to researching this and many other diseases.
