** TESTIMONIALS **

As a member of the East Arlington Rotary, I was privileged to invite Ms. De La Rosa to speak on Colon Cancer Awareness. She presents her subject matter with an understanding that can only be attained through embracing her life as a survivor. Her knowledge of fact and her eloquent explanation of the disease, along with her very personal message, were very motivational. Thank you.

Initially I did not plan to attend [the presentation], wrongly assuming that it might be a rehashing of information which I had already read or heard. "Helpful”, “relevant” and “interesting” all come to mind when describing [Grace's colon cancer awareness presentation] to co-workers and friends.
- C. Costa, JEA Environmental Services

Yesterday’s colon cancer awareness Lunch & Learn was one of the best yet. Grace was a wonderful speaker. Her personal story was a real eye opener. It would be great if we could get her back next year before/during colon cancer awareness month.
