Choosing to go public with her fight against breast cancer was a courageous act for my high school friend Annie Franco. She has affected so many people in a positive way and has changed the way people view their health for the better. To show their love, Annie’s friends and family helped to create a wonderful support team appropriately titled Annie’s Angels. Last year 40 Annie’s Angels supported their Annie at the Race for the Cure adorned in their very own wings and t-shirt. To celebrate Annie’s victory in the battle against breast cancer and to help raise funds for the cure, Annie’s Angels are doing it again in 2013 and they are welcoming new angels to the team!
Not only is Annie a courageous champion, she is dedicated to those she loves and is extremely perceptive. I thank her for the consistent and unwavering support she has always given me regarding my writing. Not only beautiful on the outside, Annie’s inner beauty is what makes her stand out. Even through the separation of time and space, Annie is generous with encouraging words that are food to my writer’s soul. Her strength and lead by example approach to life are commendable and inspiring to me. Annie has a special place in my heart and she is LOVED! From my heart to yours!
