I think in one way or another, most of us have been affected by some form of cancer and I need your help as I take on an incredible challenge, not for me, but for those who have fallen victim to this monster called breast cancer -- and by victim it's not just those fighting the disease, a victim is also someone like you -- a friend, a co-worker, a relative, a student, etc. -- anyone who mourns for someone fighting the disease who has made such a positive impact on you and in your life and heart.
It's been said that this organization should stop discussing “awareness” of breast cancer because people are “aware.”
But in the communities all across the country, it has been discovered that not everyone is “aware” of breast cancer or educated about the facts, and some have mistaken beliefs about the disease. So, I'm walking to not only ensure that awareness remains a goal, but also that people, through this organization, can also continue to be educated and helped.
The Susan G. Komen 3-Day® isn’t just a 60-mile walk over the course of three days—it’s a journey to the end of breast cancer. Your contribution will be part of the seventy-five percent of the net proceeds raised by the 3-Day® to help support Komen’s Research and Training Grant Program and large public health outreach programs for women and men facing breast cancer. The remaining 25 percent helps fund local community and Affiliate support and outreach programs.
No amount is too small...every single penny helps someone in some way...and someone, somewhere, appreciates your help in the fight. I know I do!!!! TOGETHER WE CAN WIN THE FIGHT ONE STEP AT A TIME!!!
Thanks for taking the time to visit my page and read about this endeavor. You are the best support system I could ask for and I hope you consider supporting me and helping in the fight against breast cancer.
Feel free to reach out to me if you have any questions.
