several loved ones to the disease, including her husband, father, and a brother.
"It was an honor for my family to be a part of Kaleidoscope!
Raising awareness about the many cancer screenings available and raising funds
to help those who can't afford screenings of their own has become a passion of
ours," Mosey said.
"My family has endured the pain of losing our loved ones to
cancer, but we are also lucky to have cancer survivors still among us. It's our
hope that through Kaleidoscope, and continued efforts made by the organization,
awareness of available cancer screenings will continue to spread."

chance for total eradication of the disease," said Amit Bansal, MD, of Reid
Oncology Associates. "It is critical we continue to spread the word about their
importance in saving lives."
