Description

"To be bold and behold is to move forward with courage, strength, faith and love. To face your fears and live your life with grace and gratitude. To take nothing for granted and whenever possible choose to see the beauty before you.” – Monica Hill

Monica Zealand Hill (1984-2019) was diagnosed de novo stage 4 metastatic breast cancer (MBC) in July 2017 (Ductal Carcinoma In-Situ (DCIS) ER+, PR+, Her 2 Neu-, with metastases to the liver, bones and ovaries). She founded Be Bold and Behold, a successful platform to raise money for MBC research raising more than $350,000. Over 114 lives are cut short by the devastation of MBC every day. Monica wanted to ensure that everyone was aware much more needed to be done for the advancement of MBC research.

“I never had an early stage breast cancer diagnosis. I felt a lump at age 33 and I was immediately diagnosed with stage 4 metastatic breast cancer. I remember wondering, how am I going to live with this new reality of my mortality? How can I be an example for my little daughter for the rest of my life however long it may be? I decided I wanted to “Be Bold and Behold”. I wanted to live a life with grace and gratitude but even more so I wanted to face my fears and not let them have any control over me. I don’t have time for that. And I want to take the time to behold the beauty that is all around me. The beauty of the mundane. The beauty of the extraordinary. The beauty of humanity. My cancer is aggressive. I haven’t been able to stay on one treatment for more than a few months. This is why we need more treatment options and why I am so passionate about raising money for research.” -Monica Hill

In honor of Monica, Be Bold and Behold is working to raise funds and continued awareness for metastatic breast cancer. This year our goal is to raise $200,000 to fund a full Translational Research Grant in Monica’s name. Join us for a night of FUN filled with dinner, dancing, and donations as we strive to honor those we have lost to MBC.

Wether you’re traveling in from out of town or, just looking for a place to stay after partying with a purpose. Take advantage of our room block at Westminster Hotel (Group Number : 524464)
