From one to many. We are the ones who want to change lives.
October 2013 Founder and Executive Director, Julie Moser, was diagnosed with breast cancer at the young age of 39. As a seasoned military wife, mother of two young girls, cancer shattered their world. Through the diagnosis and treatments, Julie wasn’t able to work with harsh side effects from chemo and residual effects once chemo ended. While she lost her hair, she didn’t want to lose hope. Cancer is so much more than hair loss. In December 2020, Julie was yet again fighting breast cancer. This just gave her more drive and determination to continue helping others during cancer treatments.
To all United States residents or Active Duty Military abroad that have been diagnosed with cancer and in current treatments. Any cancer. Any gender. Any age. Any income level.

Julie met Marily Considine on the first day of her chemo treatment in 2013. Marily had been asked by a fellow military spouse to visit Julie because she was a breast cancer survivor also. Marily became Julie’s angel. On many of her darkest days Marily brought a positive outlook. Her kindness and spirit were a shining star to many.
As Marily’s cancer progressed she asked that those she helped continue to give back to others. On February 10, 2019 at the age of 41, Marily passed away leaving behind her loving husband, two sweet children, and a legacy of love.
PWATX strives to emulate the spirit of Marily as we reach out in our community and our nation to do what we can to help cancer warriors in need. Marily is a big part of why we do what we do.
We love, love, love you, Marily.
