creates unique shoulder-bag satchels filled with items designed to support women undergoing chemotherapy. With help from the

My best friends are from this program, in fact, two of them are now married to each other. It is because of thisprogram that I am now a resident of the city of Pittsburgh after attending college out of state. PGSS helped me to get into MIT (my second choice was CMU) and exposed me to the opportunities that were available outside of my small hometown. I credit PGSS with the direction my life has taken over the last 10+ years.
