This will be my 11th year of participating in the Susan G. Komen 3-Day for the Cure 60 mile walk for Breast Cancer. I lost my mother to breast cancer over 30 years ago and have had many friends diagnosed with breast cancer since then. This year I am dedicating my walk to my friend Erin Kelly - a mom with 3 young daughters who was recently diagnosed.
Each year I spend 3 days walking 60 miles in this event to raise funds to support breast cancer research, treatment and health and education outreach programs. I believe that this small effort is contributing to earlier detection and better treatment options and extending the lives of everyone facing this devastating disease. The Susan G. Komen Foundation has announced their goal of reducing the current number of breast cancer deaths by 50% in the United States by 2026.
I believe that the result of what we can accomplish together is much greater than the sum of our individual efforts so I ask you to join me in my efforts to eradicate breast cancer.
