“I support the fight against breast cancer because my family has been impacted by this disease.” says Leslie.
This year, Leslie ranked #96 on the 2015 Pink Honor Roll for her phenomenal fundraising efforts in raising $1,390 to support Komen Houston’s mission – to save lives and end breast cancer forever. She has supported Komen Houston since 2008 and knows the impact her fundraising is making in the lives of women battling and surviving breast cancer.
As membership chair of Komen Houston’s Young Professionals Council, Leslie has had the opportunity to meet and work with other advocates and supporters of Komen Houston’s mission. “My favorite part about working with Komen Houston staff and volunteers is seeing and learning about how much they truly care about the community they serve. It’s important to me that the funds stay right here in Houston to fund breast health community programs and research being conducted at the Texas Medical Center.” shares Leslie.
