People wonder why I walk 60 miles in 3 days. I walk for mothers, daughters, sisters, nieces, aunts, FOR OUR FUTURE GENERATION!! I want our future generation to have the opportunity to live without having to think about being diagnosed with breast cancer. Did you know that 85% of those diagnosed with breast cancer do NOT have a family history of breast cancer?
There are many reasons why I walk, but my main reason is my best friend Stacey Roquemore. I've known Stacey since elementary school. She was diagnosed with Metastatic Breast Cancer that spread to her brain 2 years ago. She is my inspiration and reason for walking. She is receiving treatment from the funds raised by Komen and it's making a difference!
I, also, walk in memory of my friend Susan Graf. Susan lost her battle to breast cancer after fighting for many years. Susan fought courageouly and with dignity that inspired me to participate in my 1st 3 Day walk in 2015.
I completed my 2nd 3 Day in Nov. 2017. I had the honor of walking with Stacey and crossing the finish line with my husband (his 1st 3Day). I look forward to joining them again this year and creating more amazing memories!
The memories made during this "pink bubble" experience are life-changing! Please join me in this fight!
Any amount you can donate will be greatly appreciated! Also, if you have a loved one diagnosed with breast cancer, know someone who is currently fighting and undergoing treatment, or know a survivor of breast cancer, PLEASE give me their name. I will dedicate a training walk in their honor and pray for them and their family. I will, also, honor them by having their name on my pack while I participate in the 3 Day in November this year.
Please support me as I take on an incredible challenge to make an impact in the fight to end breast cancer. 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. 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.
