Earlier this month I was nominated to speak at the ASK Childhood Cancer Foundation’s “Jangling on the James” fundraising event. The designated topic? A parent’s perspective of how ASK impacts families coping with their child’s cancer diagnosis. In under five minutes. To a target audience of potential supporters and donors. Without having an emotional breakdown in front of hundreds of people.
