A local sponsor is matching donations raised dollar for dollar, stated the article.

Roemen’s sister, Wendy Moe, went through 28 radiation treatments and eight rounds of chemotherapy after being diagnosed with breast cancer, reported the article.

“Going through that battle with her … and watching her [and] the strength she had. It was inspiring,” stated Roemen in the article. “It was inspiring at a negative time to see someone who stayed so strong.”
