$have the Date: Making One Medical Student Mother's Dreams Come True

Last year, I shared with you about my amazing classmate Annique who sadly lost her battle with gastric cancer. Well, her friends have been VERY busy in the year following her passing. Not only have they been a constant support for the two young sons and husband she left behind, but they have worked tirelessly to continue her academic dreams as well.

Most notably, they are working to establish the Annique Wilson Weekes Scholarship of Excellence to support other medical students who shared Annique dream of changing the world through medicine. Tonight, at the kick off fundraiser "$have the Date", some of Annique's classmates (and some faculty) will be shaving their heads or making the big chop and donating their hair to Locks of Love. This event will not only help to jump start fundraising efforts, but also will raise cancer awareness.

For those of you not in the Indianapolis area, who would still like to support, you can donate here: Annique's Scholarship of Excellence. Any amount is greatly appreciated. Thank you!!

Below is a video of some of my classmates showcasing their well-roundedness - students by day, actors by night ;-)

 

Have a great weekend everyone!
