Fight CRC had some questions for Gwendolyn about her experience as Fight CRC Ambassador.
Gwendolyn D. Bryant hails from Jacksonville, Florida. Fight CRC had some questions for Gwendolyn about her experience as Fight CRC Ambassador:
A: I am a family member of a patient.
A: Being a Fight CRC Ambassador means representing an organization that’s positive, caring, getting things done, and bringing awareness to millions. I LOVE FIGHT CRC!
A: My daughter Tiffany Ortiz compelled me to apply to become a Fight CRC Ambassador because she began sharing her story, and Fight CRC was such a great open door to continue to share her story and help other families.
A: I learned how important it is to share your story to help someone else.
A: The most exciting part of this year for me was just being a part of this GREAT organization and reaching others, and being able to continue Tiffany’s legacy.
A: Everything is my favorite part about being an Ambassador. I found that when you say you’re an Ambassador, it seems to open people’s eyes a little more about colon cancer and getting screened; knowing that you have been trained with information that could save their lives.
A: Yes! Because YOU (Fight CRC) care! My motto is: “People don’t care how much you know, until they know how much you care.” Fight CRC has shown on many levels how much you care and your passion for what you do.
A: I don’t want any other family to go through what our family went through during Tiffany’s fight with cancer: losing someone you love so much and so young. By bringing awareness to a community that it affects at a higher rate, I feel like I have accomplished saving at least one person.
A: Yes. There were so many doors God opened for me to share my daughter’s story. People actually scheduled colonoscopies and were more open with their physicians.
A: Love and support are vitally important during this time. There are so many emotions, but know the love and support are there, and that you don’t have to fight alone.
A: I don’t want my year to end! Is it possible to continue?
Fight CRC is grateful for the support of Gwendolyn and the 2020-2021 Fight CRC Ambassadors as they continue to serve as relentless champions of hope!
