In Loving Memory of my Aunt, Rita Ana Buchanan
My first time as a walker tugged at my heart in more ways than I can put into words. It was heartbreaking and inspiring, and it moved me to witness the goodness, support and big-time love in the city I was born and raised. I was blessed to experience it and I'm ready to hit the pavement one more time! This will be my second, 60-mile journey to support, honor and recognize the millions of women and men that have lost the battle, still fighting the battle or survived the battle of Breast Cancer.
Will you help me reach my goal? A $25 donation could buy research supplies so scientists can continue to work toward finding cures or it could provide transportation for a patient to get to their next chemo treatment. A $30 donation could provide one month of financial relief to cover the cost of pain or anti-nausa medication, or cover childcare so a mother can get to treatment. If 100 of my family members and friends find it in their heart to make a contribution of $25-35, I will exceed my goal and be eligible to walk. I hope you will consider supporting me and my team, Powered by Optimism. No amount is too small!!
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.
