Why I walk... Why I have to fight..
I was diagnosed with metastatic breast cancer in September of 2020. Yes, 2020 was not a great year for most of us. For my family, it was devastating. Currently there is NO CURE for MBC. My husband Tony and I, walked the San Diego 3-Day in 2021. It was my first 3-Day and of course, I was and continue to be in treatment. I was humbled by the support of our family, friends, co-workers, and my local community. I am once again asking for your support. MBC has a median life expectancy of 3 years. If you are lucky, possibly a little longer.
We need to find a cure to ensure no one finds themselves in my situation and we need to find a cure to help those in my situation. I am personally on a new chemotherapy that has only recently come out of trial, and it has been incredibly effective, but it won’t cure my cancer.
It will be hard, but it’s not as hard as breast cancer. It’s not as hard as chemo. It’s not as hard as getting bad news at your latest scan. It’s not as hard as saying goodbye to everyone you love.
All donations matter, both big and small. Please consider supporting my cause and in return, I will once again walk 60 miles for the Susan G. Komen foundation
