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. Learn more about Dawn’s journey and the footprint she has created! Read more
