Name: Sara Gorsky
Title with ACFE: Director, Web Designer & Developer
Hometown: Elmhurst, IL
Why did you join ACFE? While I was still living in Chicago my agent mentioned to me that his good friend Jessica needed help with a website. Once I met her I fell immediately in friend-love and the rest is history.
Do you have personal experience with breast cancer? My grandmother died of ovarian cancer, and one of my dearest friends Erin died of colon cancer, so I live day to day with a very strong ‘f*ck cancer’ mantra in my veins.
What is your hope for ACFE? I hope that ACFE continues to grow and expand and is able to raise more and more funds odonate to these amazing organizations that are doing this important work. I truly believe that these organizations provide services that are changing the world, whether it be through research, patient, or family support – they are all doing the hard work and they need as much help as they can get. <3
What is your favorite thing bout ACFE? Do I have to pick ONE? IMPOSSIBLE! All I’ll say is that working with ACFE has, for me, meant that I get to work with some of the kindest and most wonderful people I’ve ever met, and I’ve also met some of the most incredible movers and shakers in the fight for breast cancer. Every day they inspire me to work harder, give more, and spread as much love as I can. Each year, when we all gather under the same roof, for the same cause, the power of all the good in the room brings tears to my eyes. It’s a wonder and a joy to experience and to be a part of making it happen.

Who would play you in a biopic about your life? My god, it would have to be Laura Dern. I mean, I’d pass out if it was, but wouldn’t that be amazing?!
