A Tribute to Dorit Shapiro
Dorit Shapiro, wife, mother of two and president of the Gal to Gal Foundation, lost her brave battle to breast cancer yesterday. She was 38 years old.
It was Dorit's hope to spread the word about the Gal to Gal Foundation and their mission to help grant wishes and provide informational resources to patients and families struggling with this deadly disease. Even in her final days, Dorit worked tirelessly to get the message out about the importance of lending support to the brave men and women who are currently living with stage IV breast cancer. If you'd like to honor Dorit's memory, please lend your support by joining the Gal to Gal Virtual Walk today.
"My goal is to honor the memories of all the women who have lost their battle to this tough enemy and that women and families battling stage IV breast cancer are never forgotten and receive the support they need and deserve. I hope you'll join me in supporting this wonderful organization until there comes a day where we are not needed because we have found a cure and no one must face living with this diagnosis."
--Dorit Shapiro, 1970-2008
