Thank you again for supporting my 2014 campaign for Iowa Secretary of State. With your help we received 509,202 votes, promoted the importance of voting rights statewide and came within 20,000 votes of winning in a very difficult year. I will always be proud of the positive campaign we ran, and grateful for your support.
Some of you have asked about my next steps, and I am very pleased to report I am taking over as the new Executive Director of Above + Beyond Cancer based here in Des Moines, Iowa. I've followed this organization closely since it was founded in 2011 and could not be more impressed with the incredible work done by the volunteers, dedicated board members and founder Dr. Dick Deming, without a doubt one of the most inspirational leaders in the state.
Above + Beyond Cancer's mission is to elevate the lives of those touched by cancer to create a healthier world, and my goal is to grow the organization and expand our reach. If you have a couple minutes check out this video and see for yourself the courageous steps taken by cancer survivors as they climb mountains, and watch caregivers travel incredible distances with a prayer flag in their pocket in memory of a loved one. Their journeys remind us all that cancer prevention and treatment must include strengthening the mind, body and spirit.

Thank you for everything you have done to help me along the way. Please remain engaged, and stay in touch.
