Go, Fight Like a Girl and WiNUP!

26 09 2011

WiNUP is the Women’s International Network of Utility Professionals, and an amazing group to be a part of.  This year at their annual national convention, they asked if I would come speak about community service, sing, meet-and-greet with the ladies and take part in their luncheon presentation.  They asked me to come for two reasons, my emphasis on community service and my involvement with ovarian cancer awareness.

Every year at their nation convention, they choose a charitable cause for which they raise funds and spread awareness.  This year, they chose breast cancer as their initiative and wanted me to come speak about the importance of women knowing their bodies, awareness measures, seeking help, treatment and battling cancer of all types.  The theme of the convention was “Fight Like a Girl.”

All of the ladies were truly remarkable and inspiring.  Listening to a breast cancer survivor really touched my heart and continued to emphasize the need for more research, awareness and advocacy.  Thank you to all of the women at the WiNUP conference for making my visit such a special one and for allowing me to share with you.
