Hi! My name is Iris Casey. I am a freshman at Wake Forest, so this will be my first time dancing! Wake 'N Shake is important to me because of its way to bring so many people together to raise money for an amazing cause. My Aunt Holly was diagnosed with lung cancer. As an extrmeley active, healthy, and young person, her diagnosis shocked and saddened my entire family. Aunt Holly immediately went into an intensive treatment plan. Now, I am proud to say my Aunt Holly defeated the disease and has been cancer free for several years.
The money raised at Wake 'N Shake all goes to cancer research to hopefully find the cure. Money is given to local treatment centers as well as large research centers. I am proud to be a member of the Wake 'N Shake Committee and be a part of the search for the cure.
