Komen, in which she would raise awareness about breast cancer, fundraise, and actively participate in the Race For A Cure each year. Vera recently founded Treasure Your Chest Inc. which was created to provide funding to help uninsured women get a mammogram. It will also offer resources and support in regard to breast health. As Ms. United World 2023, Vera looks forward to empowering women about the importance of breast health and early detection, as well as encouraging women to advocate for themselves!
