WHY AM I WALKING?
Six years ago when I was diagnosed with Metastatic Breast Cancer I
made a commitment to myself that I would choose to participate in ONE
organization that helps breast cancer patients. I chose Making
Strides against Breast Cancer. This particular fundraiser allows me
to bring many of the important people in my life together in one
to support my cancer fight. My Oncologist and Oncology nurses
teacher friends and even my Pampered Chef friends all come out to
support me and other breast cancer survivors like me. What else can
I ask for? All my worlds converge in one place at one time. This is
the only event I participate in to raise funds for Breast Cancer
research and awareness. I have been participating in the Making
Strides walk for five years... because it helps other women like me.
Today there is more hope than ever for people facing breast cancer.
However there is much work to be done to find promising new
treatments increase awareness about the importance of mammograms and
help all women get access to screenings and care. In addition we're
working to connect those impacted by this disease to the information
day-to-day help and emotional support they need to wage their battle
against breast cancer.
I believe that hope for a world without breast cancer starts with me.
That's why I'm walking in the American Cancer Society Making Strides
Against Breast Cancer event. Not only is this my opportunity to join
my community to fight back against breast cancer it is a way to
inspire hope by raising funds and awareness to help those facing the
disease and save more lives.
And you can be a part of it too.
I have signed up to walk and hope you will join me in my effort by
signing up to join my team or making a donation in support of my
Hope starts with us.
