 “As a young Registered Nurse, I saw first-hand the devastation caused by breast cancer to my patients and their families. I was also touched personally by this disease as my grandmother was a survivor of breast cancer,” said Cheryl Indelicato, proprietor, HandCraft Artisan Collection Wines. “When I learned that early intervention makes this disease treatable and beatable, I wanted to contribute my time and attention to getting the word out and helping to eradicate it in my lifetime. I have personally walked 192 miles in the fight against breast cancer and Team HandCraft has raised over $150,000 to support this cause… And we are just getting started.”
