Lindee Katdare: Susan G. Komen "Big Wig"

(Copyright by WSLS - All rights reserved)

In addition to my full time job as the Co-host of Daytime Blue Ridge, I am also a full time mother to three children.  I have watched several of my friends battle this disease over the past few years, while also juggling their careers and motherhood.  It is a battle that no woman should have to fight.

I am honored to be part of the "Big Wig" campaign to help raise money for breast cancer awareness and research and you can help too! Simply head over to http://vablueridge.info-komen.org and make a donation today!
