On October 12th, 2008, Dorit Shapiro, the President of Gal to Gal, lost her brave battle to breast cancer. At 38 years old, she left behind a loving husband, two beautiful young children and a supportive family. Her wish was to see Gal to Gal Foundation fulfill its vision and help those who needed us most. Her dedication to this cause was so great that she spoke on behalf of the Foundation and its importance just one week prior to losing her life. Please help us honor Dorit’s memory and what she was trying to accomplish by becoming a sponsor for our 2009 Walk. To watch Dorit's moving video from a Gal to Gal event held in her honor last year (approximately one week before she passed away), please click here: www.youtube.com/watch?v=8_
This October, Gal to Gal Foundation will be dedicating itself to raising funds in order to grant wishes to Stage IV breast cancer patients and their families. It is our goal to grant 100 wishes at $1000 per family in Dorit’s honor. These are just some wishes we have had the privilege of granting: Rosemarie in Minneapolis purchased Christmas gifts in advance for her children, Susan was able to take her son for a vacation to Key West, we helped Vickie from Ohio pay her expenses, and Cheryl in Illinois got her puppy neutered.
