Welcome to "Marimar's Kicked Cancer Tribe" page!
We are Marimar's sisters, family and friends. The people who were her tribe over the last year while she battled Triple Negative Breast Cancer Stage 2/3. After 6 months of chemo, a double mastectomy and 5 weeks of radiation, Marimar is cancer free and on her way to full recovery while currently doing oral chemo and with reconstruction scheduled for November 2020.
It was not an easy road doing all this while being a mom of an 8 year old and a 2 year old, a wife and keeping a full time job but her tribe was there. At home. At the hospital. At work. By phone. By text. By email. They supported with material, mental and spiritual support.
On September 12, we plan to celebrate Marimar's birthday by walking, running or riding at different times and from different places. All with a purpose: celebrate her life AND raise money for breast cancer research. Research that was vital in offering Marimar top notch treatment that cured her from one of the most deadly breast cancers.
As a member of this team, we are each playing a part in helping Susan G. Komen® end breast cancer forever.
The money you raise will fund research to discover more effective treatments, as well as vital patient support to help connect people with things like breast cancer screenings, diagnostics, treatment assistance and so much more. Marimar is very grateful that insurance covered most of her treatment but recognizes that healthcare disparities mean others are not as lucky as she was and wants to contribute to others access to treatment.
We're stronger together. United by hope, we can support those who need help today, while fearlessly searching for tomorrow's cures.
