Opie’s platform is breast cancer awareness and education. “I have had several family members affected by breast cancer, and I know I am at risk, so I want to do everything I can to support research and raise awareness,” said Opie.

Our sites are more popular than ever, but advertising revenues are falling - so you can see why we could use your help. Our independent journalism costs time, money and hard work to keep you informed, but we do it because we believe that it matters. If everybody who appreciates our reporting efforts were to help fund it for as little as $1, our future would be much more secure. Thanks in advance for your support!
