As a rising senior at Plano West Junior High School last year, Rissa Broudy was challenged by her Advanced Placement English teacher to address a meaningful problem that affects the lives of many. Rissa was inspired by the perseverance of her father, Scott Broudy, a melanoma and head and neck cancer patient at MD Anderson, and the care he receives at the institution. She saw the assignment as a way to spread melanoma prevention awareness and contribute to a family endowment named for Rissa and her sister, Linsey. In the process, she says, she learned the responsibility of a lifelong obligation and commitment to MD Anderson.
