My Story


Dear Family and Friends,

I hope you will join me to help End Breast Cancer forever!  As you well
know, this year is like no other year! BUT REGARDLESS OF THE PANDEMIC, 
BREAST CANCER CONTINUES AS D0ES OUR BATTLE T0 END BREAST CANCER DEATHS!
On Thursday, September 10, 2020,  (Although the DC Komen Race for the Cure is virtual this year on 9/12/20),  we will be walking the 5K with my Team-------"CONNIE'S CHOCOLATES AND FRIENDS FOR THE CURE" in Great Fall National Park. 

This is our TEAM'S 10TH AND FINAL YEAR!  
TO ALL MY TEAM MEMBERS WHO HAVE SUPPORTED ME AND WALKED WITH ME FOR ONE
YEAR TO ALL 10 YEARS, I AM FOREVER GRATEFUL! For all of you who have
supported me in the past with a donation, I thank you so very much.  I
hope you know how much I
appreciate it. I just cannot continue to ask you for continued financial
 donations and support. YOU have been EXTREMELY GENEROUS!  I will
continue to raise funds for Breast Cancer through my business, CONNIE'S
CHOCOLATE CONFECTIONS (www.ConniesChocolates.com). I donate 10% of all
my sales from May 1st thru October 31st yearly, through Paul and my
personal donations and I hope to continue my annual PINK SILENT
AUCTION.  Stay tuned, Online Bidding this year will begin a later this
month of September.


 Last September, Paul and I, along with our good friend, teammate and
midwifery colleague, CheeLee walked the Camino (The French Way of St
James) to Santiago, Spain. !00 km in six days!

It was an incredible and challenging experience physically, mentally,
emotionally and spiritually!  After the Camino---A LIFE CHANGING EVENT,
we drove up the coast of Spain to Lourdes and on to Paris for a few
days. In 2012, 1 1/2 years after completing all 3 phases of my treatment
 for Breast Cancer, Paul and I went to Lourdes to "help seal the deal".
That first visit was such an unbelievable spiritual experience, that we wanted to return to Lourdes again for spiritual renewal and thanksgiving
 to Mary, The Blessed Mother.

And this year, the 10th year since my diagnosis, I am DEDICATING MY RACE IN THANKSGIVING TO GOD!

KOMEN
has recently established a NEW AND BOLD GOAL: TO REDUCE THE CURRENT
NUMBER OF BREAST CANCER DEATHS BY 50% IN THE US BY 2026.

I am grateful to the Susan G. KOMEN Foundation and all of the people who have made
donations
 in the past years.  I believe that it is one of the factors among many
others that I am still alive today after a diagnosis of a very
aggressive form of Breast Cancer (Triple Negative Breast Cancer) 10 years ago. I continue to want to
help those people (some of whom have not even been diagnosed yet) to
have a good outcome like I have had.  And I am very grateful to my TEAM and to all of my donors for helping us raise in the past 9 years over $50,000.



 I ask you these question to consider.  Do you know someone---a family
member, a friend, a neighbor, a coworker who has been diagnosed with
Breast Cancer in the past year? 
Do you know someone that has died of Breast Cancer?


This year, Paul and I walk carrying a close family member in our heart who was just diagnosed in August with Breast Cancer.


TODAY, PLEASE CONSIDER JOINING MY 2020 TEAM.  If you can't, I hope you will consider making a donation.
 You can walk with me in honor of someone with Breast Cancer or in
memory of someone who lost their life because of Breast Cancer. If you
do not know anyone right now, there is a high chance that you will in the near future.
Currently, one in every 8 women are diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime.

 

My personal goal this year is to raise AT LEAST $5,000.
