Why Anchors – from Carol?

  • In 2015 upon learning of Carol’s ovarian cancer diagnosis, it became my mission to fight with her.  I began researching alternative approaches to treatment, diet/health/fitness programs for her to ensure she lived the best life possible while undergoing the treatment she chose for herself.
  • It became my (& Ryan’s) personal duty to assist my Dad in caring for her and ensuring she lived the rest of her life to its fullest.  We remained by her side through hospitalizations, doctor’s visits, etc.  Watching her experience the highs & lows, the pain & setbacks, losing her will to live, I knew that something needed to be done to support all cancer patients and families who are experiencing/have experienced what we went through.
  • AFC was established as a dream/hope to assist/give back to those impacted by cancer and many other areas that were important to Carol.  It became my determination to not let anyone forget who Carol was and what she cherished while she was alive.
