Rita Thomas, Co/Founder | October 6, 2020

Every man (woman) wants to leave a legacy behind, something that will define them and validate that their time on earth was not in vain. Something that says, “Hey World, I was here!” According to the Bible, “a good man leaveth an inheritance to his children's children" (Proverbs 13:22). And, so it is, that the goal is to establish a foundation so strong that generations to come will benefit greatly. 


As a Christian, I realize that an inheritance is not always materialistic. There does not have to be a reading of a will to establish that something has been bequeathed. Peter Strope wrote a legacy is not leaving something for people. It’s leaving something in people.” And that’s where I find myself fervently praying and asking God daily not to let breast cancer be the legacy that I leave to my beautiful granddaughters. 


I am a first generation breast cancer patient who fought and overcame the dreaded disease not once but twice, I do know that it is not a death sentence. However, it’s not something that I want my precious girls to ever have to contend with. 


Also, because there was no traceable history in my family, I realize that it can come from out of nowhere. And it’s for that very reason that I chose to believe that it started and stopped with me.
