As a young breast cancer survivor and mother, I am passionately dedicated to raising funds for research to help find the causes & cures of this disease so that my children will never have to hear the words that shattered my world on September 7, 2005, "you have breast cancer."
Please consider pledging your support as I continue on this deeply personal journey in the fight against breast cancer in the Breast Cancer 3-Day, a 60 mile walk with proceeds benefiting Susan G. Komen for the Cure and the National Philanthropic Trust, funding important breast cancer research, education, screening, and treatment.
On November 16 - 18, 2012 I will be walking for my fifth time in San Diego's Susan G. Komen 3-Day for the Cure. This 60-mile walk is not only an opportunity to raise desperately needed money for critical cancer research & treatments, but for me, it is an opportunity to celebrate my survivorship and walk in bold defiance of the disease that threatened to take my life nearly 7 years ago. The disease that threatened to rob this world of our two miracle babies, Annagrace & Jonah...both of whom were born after my diagnosis and treatment. This year I will again be walking in celebration of not only my life, but more importantly, in celebration of their lives and my promise to them to work towards finding a cure for breast cancer so that they never have to face this horrific disease.
Please send me an email (email@example.com) with the name(s) of your loved one(s) who have faced this disease as I would like to walk in their honor as well.
Any amount that you can contribute toward my fundraising goal of $7,500 is sincerely appreciated, by me and by all breast cancer survivors. I understand that these are financially difficult times and that's why it's good to know that no donation amount is too small to make a difference! By raising this much needed money, we can work to ensure that not one more person has to lose their battle with this disease. Please join me in this fight...together, we will create a world without breast cancer! I have absolute faith that we will succeed!!!
With love, gratitude, faith & hope,
I am privileged & humbled to walk in celebration and respectful memory of these courageous women who have lost their battle with this disease...
