Using creativity, social media and business principles, I designed and sold shirts with “melaNOma” on the front and “MD Anderson Cancer Center” on the back. I also included a bottle of MD Anderson-branded sunscreen with each shirt sold. Over the next two months, I began to see the shirts being worn everywhere: school, grocery stores, the recreation center and restaurants. Some of the people I knew, and many I did not. But everyone said the same thing: They loved the shirts, but they especially loved supporting the cause.
I was honored to deliver $250 in proceeds to be deposited into the Rissa and Linsey Broudy Curing Cancer in Our Lifetime Endowment at MD Anderson. The opportunity to benefit MD Anderson in this way made a real difference to me, my family and my friends. Hopefully, this is my first of many lifelong contributions to the endowment over time.
