My name is Katie Brewer. I am the Marketing Coordinator for the Monarch Casino in Black Hawk, CO. I graduated from Metropolitan State University of Denver in 2015 with a degree in Special Event Production and Meeting Planning. My sister Niki and I are the Logistics Co-chairs for the 2017 Champions of Hope Gala for the American Cancer Society.
I volunteer with the American Cancer Society because my mother and grandmother are cancer survivors. My grandmother beat colon cancer in 1990 and my mother beat thyroid cancer in 2014.
My family is lucky to have beaten cancer but many families are not so lucky. My boyfriend’s aunt passed away from lung cancer in January of 2016 and the American Cancer Society helped his family the whole way. The work being done at ACS is an important part of realizing a world without cancer and volunteering for this incredible organization is just one way I can say thank you for all they do.
