In 2017, one of my closest friends, Mariz was diagnosed with breast cancer. Little did I know, that I too would battle the big C soon afterwards. It has been over a year for Mariz but it’s just half a year for me.
Without Mariz, I think my fight would have been much more challenging. Mariz gave me the support that I needed throughout my whole treatment and her warmth and humor was a great comfort to me. Her resilience is a shining example of what I hope to be — not just in this fight, but as I live my life.
Join us on Saturday, November 30 for the BCN Benefit Concert happening at the SOMA Art Lounge in Thao Dien. Mariz’ sons’ Jeth and Jean Mark organized this as a thanksgiving event to honor their mom and to raise cancer awareness in the Vietnamese community.
All proceeds will be donated to the Breast Cancer Network Vietnam, a non-profit organization helping women (and men) in need of support as they fight breast cancer.
Send me a message for more details or would like to get in touch on how you too can help.
