Last year I received the news that no one ever wants to hear, I had breast cancer. During my treatment and recovery, the American Cancer Society (ACS) team has become near and dear to my heart, providing my family and me incredible support as well as information about research and new treatment options that were available. As I continue my journey towards beating this terrible disease, I wanted to find a way to start giving back.
Everyday ACS researchers are being asked to find creative solutions to new problems, problems I never anticipated I would ever have to face. These researchers include incredible women who are making invaluable contributions to cancer research, yet they are significantly underrepresented. This is why the ResearcHERS campaign spoke to me. It is an opportunity to give back by using my platform to raise awareness of women-led research, strengthen the careers of women researchers, and to advocate women to pursue STEM programs to create and inspire the next generation of female leaders in cancer research.

Along with her participation with business organizations, Sabrina is committed to giving back to the community through multiple outreach programs like Make A Wish and St. Jude’s Ranch for Children. This year, because the pandemic prevented several charitable organizations from holding their normal in-person fundraisers, Sabrina started multiple on-line fundraising drives through her professional and personal social media networks and led a team to build and donate a new outdoor swing set to an amazing Make A Wish child. When Sabrina is not working, she and her husband along with their three children enjoy their time together traveling and many outdoor activities.
