Why I Became An IRONDame

I have so many reasons why I became a IRONDame. One is because of Wellspring. I like what they have to offer for cancer patients and their families and their vision for the future. Another reason is that I found that the IRONDames are a small close-knit group of women that not only support Wellspring but strongly support each other in their everyday life goals, whatever their goals maybe.

How Long I’ve Been An IRONDame

I’ve been an IRONDame since January 2010.
