Making Strides of Central Park

Lenni's Mom

This past March and at 36 weeks pregnant, I was diagnosed with aggressive stage 3+ breast cancer.  I was 36 years old. Given the large size and advanced stage of the tumor, we were forced to deliver our son, Lenni Bryce, 3 weeks early and only 5 days after initial diagnosis.  Lenni is the sunshine in our lives, and, as many of you know, Lenni is a happy and healthy not-so-little little boy.  From the day of that diagnosis, I have been engaged in the fight of my life.  With no time to spare, I began chemotherapy just 9 days after Lenni was born.  I’ve always heard stories about breast cancer; seen the pink ribbons and perhaps even enjoyed a pink-frosted cupcake in support of breast cancer awareness. But, I honestly had no idea how nasty this disease really is. I underwent 5 months of exhausting and grueling chemo treatments (where I was affectionately called “Lenni’s Mom” by the infusion staff), where I felt horribly sick and endured bone pain that made it difficult for me to walk.  My husband and I had to leave our newborn son to attend what felt like never-ending doctor appointments. Most recently, I underwent a double mastectomy and reconstruction, which has had its own impacts on my life.  But right now I can proudly report that I beat breast cancer. I’ll soon begin daily radiation treatments to ensure the cancer doesn’t return but for now, I won this battle! 

My dear friends organized team Lenni’s Mom so we can all participate in the Making Strides against Breast Cancer walk hosted by the American Cancer Society on October 14th in NYC, Central Park.  If you’re interested in walking with team Lenni’s Mom, or if you are able to donate to this righteous cause, please join/donate by clicking on the below link. 
 
If you have any questions regarding the walk and festivities being planned, please contact Ross Pattershall. In addition, we are ordering Team Lenni’s Mom T-shirts to wear during the walk.  Please contact Albertine Rodriguez 
 
Together we can make a difference!

Any donation amount helps save lives from breast cancer.

Welcome to our Team Page. We've formed a team because this cause is important to us. We want to help. And walking and raising money in our local American Cancer Society Making Strides Against Breast Cancer event is the best way we can do that. We all have different reasons for participating but we share a determination to help save lives from breast cancer.

There are so many ways that the money our team raises helps. It’s helping fund innovative research. It's providing free information for people dealing with the disease. It’s providing rides to treatment and places to stay for people who have to seek treatment far from home. In short, our money is helping save lives. Consider donating to our team and helping advance the cause.

How We Support the American Cancer Society

Of course we walk in the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer event. And we solicit donations from family, friends, and other supporters. But we also schedule fundraisers in lead-up to the big event. Bake-sales, car washes, and countless other types of events. And we promote those on social media, through Facebook and Twitter, by word of mouth, and through flyers at work and around the neighborhood. The success of fundraising events depends on two things - hard work and getting the word out. And we're out to do both. Keep an eye out for our fundraising events.

Join us. Donate today. Or walk with us.
