I began a journey 16 years ago with a group of law enforcement colleagues to take a stand on the need to find a cure for a disease which impacts generations of families. We named our team "Shields For The Cure" and vowed to individually or collectively contribute to the effort as long as we were physically able or until a cure is found. The composition of the team has changed over the years with moves, with illness and life changes, but the passion and commitment has never wavered and never will.
