It has been on my "bucket list" for years to participate in this event but something has always stopped me. This year I'm lucky to get to do this with my sister, Kristi. Our family has been very fortunate to not have been affected by breast cancer but we have seen too many beautiful, amazing friends take on this fight. Some have won their fight and others have not. The older I get, the more I realize that despite all the progress that's been made in breast cancer research, we are still losing way too many people to this disease way too early in their life. As a mother of two adult daughters, I don't want them to lose their mom to breast cancer. I don't want my future grandchildren to ever have to face losing their mom to breast cancer.
I've already met so many amazing women since signing up to walk this event and feel so lucky to be meeting them. I'm walking in honor of all those who have faced this disease, those who have beat it and for those that didn't. Please support me as I take on an incredible challenge to make an impact in the fight to end breast cancer. We are walking to change lives and cure diseases.
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.
