Yes I am doing it AGAIN!!! I signed up for the SUSAN G KOMEN 3 DAY WALK in 2012 in honor of my deceased father who passed from Cancer and the walk was a GREAT JOURNEY that changed by life for many reasons. I completed the Walk for 5 years in a row and took 2017 off. Due to the recent passing of my dear sister-friend Barbie from uterine cancer, I am compelled to do SOMETHING to help raise funds for a cure! Barbie fought a courageous battle for 5 years. I will walk in her honor and in honor of another dear family member and friend Lanette who was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2017 but through the early detection process, she is on the road to recovery and is a Survivor!!! Cancer is such a horrible disease! My walk in The Susan G. Komen 3-Day® isn’t just a 60-mile walk over the course of three days—it’s a journey and my attempt to the end of breast cancer and hopefully all cancers! Won't you please help me as I must raise $2300 to participate.
The numbers of undetected breast cancer is staggering. Someone's mother, sister, wife, daughter, friend, granddaughter will be diagnosed as the statistics reveal it occurs in the US every 3 minutes. WOW! Hopefully our funding will make a difference. In 2016, Komen announced a Bold Goal—to reduce the current number of breast cancer deaths by 50% in the U.S. by 2026. That’s why I’m walking, and raising money—to make that goal a reality and to end the possibility of risk for all women and men (yes men too are at risk). Your donation is sincerely appreciated!
