Why are you participating?
Throughout many stages of my life I have witnessed high school friends lose siblings, college friends lose mothers, and close friends that I have made through our children's activities fight and win their battle with breast cancer. Some of the victories were due to early detection and some were due to advanced medical treatments. All of these were a result of research and awareness. I'm sure all the battles were equally spirited, but "strong will" alone cannot beat breast cancer. Awareness, early detection, and research are all "must have" weapons in order to continue to increase survival rates of breast cancer. Susan G. Komen has successfully led the charge on fundraising so that lifesaving research can continue to assist in cures and early detection. By now I'm sure you have heard of breast cancer and you know that the battle against it is worth it. It goes without saying that this is a very expensive fight. I'm reaching out to you to ask for your help. Please consider donating to our efforts to save the lives of our mothers, daughters, and friends. With help, such as yours, the victories will continue to increase. Let's not slow the roll.
