In 1997 at the age of 48, my mom was diagnosed with breast cancer. It was a scary time for our family, not knowing how aggressive the cancer would be, how the treatments would affect her, and if she would survive. She did survive – she has been cancer free since 2002. We are the lucky ones, but many are not as lucky.
This is why I walk. For our friends and family, and our children. And for my two friends who were diagnosed this year.
Please support me as I commit to an incredible challenge – walking the Susan G. Komen 3-Day, a 60-mile walk over 3 days, in San Diego this November.
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. And that’s why I know I have to do this. That’s why I commit. That’s why I’m walking and why I’m raising money – to end breast cancer forever.
Please consider contributing whatever you are able, to help me in this fight. We are in this together! Thank you!
