Why are you participating in this competition?
Honestly, I think it's great that as a whole, we as individuals donate money to save the lives of others. Due to the complexity of things like certain cancers it's necessary for us to do continued research and organizations like this help educate and motivate us to do so. I've had family and friends who've experience hardships with cancer, and thanks to the research done, they were able to see another day.
