Dancing Raises Funds for Cancer Survivors

Being a part of Dancing with the Survivors turned out to be one of the happiest moments of Rachel Platt’s life. After initially turning them down, the breast cancer survivor realized how much she could give back through The Pink Fund. “I initially said, no, thank you. I have no rhythm. Nothing. I can’t even dance. It’s really pathetic. I hung up the phone and then I said to myself, this is like the opportunity of a lifetime,” said Platt, who was diagnosed five years ago and participated in the event in 2014 at Beyer Ford in Morristown.
