Lauren Whitehead, Facilities Project Manager at bevello, “The word ‘cancer’ had such an increased impact on me when it touched someone I love. My family has been greatly affected by this disease as have many of the friends and family members of our clients…even several of our clients themselves. I believe in the mission of the Kay Yow Cancer Fund and I love that we can join efforts with them in the fight to end women’s cancers.”
