GAME TO BENEFIT I WILL SURVIVE: All proceeds from the raffle will go to I Will Survive, Inc., 5879 New Peachtree Road, a local non-profit agency for breast cancer survivors. I Will Survive was founded by Director and military veteran Anisa Palmer (www.iwillsurviveinc.org). Ms. Palmer, who served two deployments in Iraq for the U.S. Army’s 82nd Airborne Division, created the agency in memory of her mother, who lost a battle with cancer at age 38, and to help others struggling with the disease.
The agency’s work is divided into three major components:
* surviving financial assistance;
* surviving educational awareness: and
* health and wellness survivor-ship.
