Hello! I am walking in the Susan G. Komen 3 Day for the Cure August 25-27 in Philadelphia. During the three days, my sister, two cousins and I will walk 60 miles in an effort to raise awareness and support for Breast Cancer.
As most of you know, I lost my Gram in 2010 to breast cancer. It was a very difficult time for our family. In 2011, my sister and I participated in the SGK 3 Day in Cleveland and raised $6,300. Every penny went towards Breast Cancer research. Unfortunately, breast cancer hit our family again last year when my aunt was diagnosed. Although she went through treatment and surgeries and was found cancer free, it quickly came back just two months later. I am happy to say after more chemo and radiation, she is now back to cancer free and we are all crossing our fingers and saying a prayer that she stays that way.
My sister, her two daughters and I decided to take on the challenge to once again not only do the walk but together, raise $9,200. While it’s a huge challenge, physically, financially and emotionally, I believe we can do it.
I am asking all of you to please consider donating. While I understand not everyone can, I appreciate everyone taking the time to read this!
