From spreading awareness at health fairs to planning Phoenix Undy Run/Walks, Anne Bergersen has been dedicated to our Central Arizona Chapter from the very beginning. As a colon cancer survivor, she doesn’t hesitate to share her story or a few encouraging words; as a dedicated volunteer, she’s willing to do what it takes to give back to the community. The former Chapter Chair may have recently stepped down, but her legacy in the chapter lives on. That’s why we’re excited to honor her as our Hero of the Month.

No matter how tough things were for her, she would show up, every day and make us laugh. In fact, you would nearly forget she had been fighting this disease for ten years. She was a hope and inspiration to everyone she met in our communities as well as in all of the support groups she so loved participating in. Read more
