Greg Olsen has witnessed cancer and the pain and suffering it causes firsthand. In 2001, his mother Susan was diagnosed with breast cancer. Through perseverance and great care she was able to overcome this terrible disease. It is in Susan's honor that Greg started Receptions for Research. He saw how difficult it was for his mother to battle breast cancer and wants to make sure that everyone who is affected by this disease gets a "second chance at life," just like Susan did.
