It's that time of year again - I will be walking and raising money in support of the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure! For those who do not know, I have done this race around my birthday since 2010 and try to raise money each year for the cause after working at a cancer treatment center. This year, I have set a goal of raising $2500!! Seems like a huge number to conquer, but nothing like the battle those fighting cancer have set their eyes on.
In 2014 my walk had a personal purpose for the first time - walking in support of my good friend Dr. E, as she fought her battle against breast cancer. She has been a spiritual mentor, life mentor, and was my doctor as I was trying to conceive Brielle. She is an amazing woman whom everyone should aspire to mirror. I am so happy to report Dr. E has won her battle and is a survivor!
Unfortunately as time has marched on, this disease is effecting more family and friends including two of my aunts also fought breast cancer. I am happy to report that all three women were fighters and survivors - I'd love to keep supporting the research that goes to keeping these stories positive!
I have met some amazing women while fundraising and supporting Komen. I would love for you all to join me and show them how much we want to keep fighting with them.
Please join us this year as we walk to support the research funding towards finding a cure for this terrible disease which is touching so many. If you can not join us in the walk, please consider making a tax-deductible donation today in support of my fundraising efforts. You can donate online with your credit card by clicking the button above my fundraising thermometer.
Your support helps us get one step closer to a world without breast cancer. 75 percent of the money raised through the Race stays in the community to fund local breast cancer education, screening and treatment programs. The remaining 25 percent supports groundbreaking breast cancer research.
Together, we are fueling the best science, boldest community and biggest impact in the fight against breast cancer. And we will not stop until this disease is gone forever. That’s our promise. Will you please join me in this fight by making a donation today?
