Join Me in the Fight Against Breast Cancer
It's been 10 years since I first heard those words, "You have breast cancer." It would be natural to try to forget about it now, but that is impossible, not only because of the long lasting effects of surgery, chemotherapy and radiation that remind me daily, but also because of all the angels who helped me along the journey. I feel that I owe it to them and their generosity to give back and keep fighting for a cure for this horrible disease that takes lives and often alters survivors' lives forever. Not to mention the toll it takes on victims' spouses, families and friends.
For these reasons, when my friend, Jane Abraham, founder of this event and owner of Scout & Molly's Boutique in Reston, asked me to help with the Runway to the Cure, I saw it as a privilege. By participating with the Runway to the Cure fashion show fundraiser, I can contribute in a powerful way to help raise funds in an effort to stop this disease that affects 1 in 8 women during their lifetime. As the world’s largest and most impactful breast cancer organization, Susan G. Komen supports more breast cancer research than any other nonprofit outside the U.S. government, while providing real-time help to those facing the disease.
While I continue to be grateful for the incredibly generous outpouring of support that I received from so many of you (preparing meals, "Annie's Army!," visits, calls, cards and prayers) that I can never repay, I humbly ask if you would consider helping me reach my goal. You can make a donation in any amount online by clicking the button above my fundraising thermometer.
I hope you can join us for the fashion show fun!
