Pary Forood loves her job as executive director of the Miles of
Hope Breast Cancer Foundation. To explain why, she quotes from “a
lovely letter” she recently received from a woman named Dara, who
was helped by Miles of Hope.
“Your financial assistance not only paid the bills, it gave me the will to continue my treatments,” Forood paraphrased the letter. “That’s the kind of thing that makes it worthwhile.”
October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and Miles of Hope is a shining star in the fight against the disease.
