Everyone I know has a memory of a loved one. Everyone I have met on the 3-day is passionate. We must bring an end to breast cancer. Everyone has a story. This is my story.
I have been a care giver, friend, confidant, and supporter of the strongest woman I know for my best friend, my mom, Linda Wawra. She has been fighting, surviving, and thriving with metastatic breast cancer for 11 years. My family and I began our story with breast cancer the fall after my sixteenth birthday and it has been a roller coaster. My mother has been given the title survivor three times but we are still fighting her battle today. With every diagnosis I knew I needed to do more to support her and everyone affected by breast cancer. I began walking with the Komen foundation in 2015 and became enthralled by the PINK bubble. We must find an end to this disease and provide our friends, aunts, uncles, moms, grandmothers, children and grandchildren with a world without breast cancer. I am passionate about helping to find a cure and your donation can help support research to find that cure. Please consider donating today and join me today in the fight to end breast cancer.
Please support me as I take on an incredible challenge. 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. Seventy-five percent of the net proceeds raised by the 3-Day® help support Komen’s Research and Training Grant Program and large public health outreach programs for women and men facing breast cancer. The remaining 25 percent helps fund local community and Affiliate support and outreach programs. All donations are tax deductible.
