Dawn Gagliardi was diagnosed with stage IV colon cancer at 31 years old. Through her years of treatment and seven surgeries, her positive attitude and drive to make a difference in this space never wavered. Following her diagnosis, she started volunteering in her local community, where she met others who also wanted to change the colon cancer scene in Georgia. Together, they got involved with our first-ever Atlanta Undy Run/Walk in a big way, helping increase participation and raising funds for the event.

Although I could pick out my teammates from the crowd by their neon shirts, I felt alone. The emotion of the event overwhelmed me from the moment I arrived. It was a steamy day in downtown Philadelphia and my group of family and friends were joining me at the Colon Cancer Alliance’s Undy Run/Walk.
