My mom always said, "Always a new day, always grateful. May I please be a living example of this and an inspiration."

The American Cancer Society, it’s research & development is the gift of LIFE.  With each dollar raised someone, somewhere lives to see another second, minute, hour, or day. My Mom was a direct recipient of that gift for 20 years as she fought Stage IV Metastatic Breast Cancer. Her wish was to see a cure within her lifetime and for all to benefit from it. Throughout the last few months of her fight, she was still continuing to think of ways and making notes on how she could help others with their fight. Her gift of life enabled her to share her fight, her LIGHT, and experiences with many.  

Throughout her fight, which was an everyday battle, my mom had been on several types of chemo and a multitude of treatments with every side effect imaginable but she was SO FULL of LIFE and was NEVER EVER defined by her diagnosis and illness. 

The Making Strides Breast Cancer walk is our opportunity to not only remember and celebrate the long hard strong fight my mom put up but also to help raise funds for groundbreaking research, information and services for people fighting breast cancer, create more awareness and mammograms for women who need them. 

My Mom was a first-hand recipient of the services that the American Cancer Society provided. When she was first diagnosed she received a call, a volunteer came and spent time to telling their story and not to despair. They support breast cancer patients in more ways than you can imagine.

Every day, the American Cancer Society helps people take steps to reduce their risk of breast cancer or find it early when it is easiest to treat. Today 1 of every 2 women newly diagnosed with breast cancer reaches out to them for help and support. They provide free information and services when and where women need it throughout their journey to get well. They are investing in groundbreaking research to find, prevent, treat, and cure breast cancer, and are working to ensure access to mammograms for women who need them. 

A donation to the walk isn’t just for helping the fight against breast cancer. The American Cancer Society provides gifts to all types of cancers. 

TOGETHER we can make a DIFFERENCE and live on my Mom’s hopes, dreams and life mission. 

Stefanie, Ed and Family 



Why We Are Making Strides

Welcome to our Team Page! Almost everyone has been touched by breast cancer in some way, so we've decided to make a difference by walking and raising money in our local American Cancer Society Making Strides Against Breast Cancer event.

Today 1 of every 2 women newly diagnosed with breast cancer reaches out to the American Cancer Society for help and support. The donations our team raises will enable investment in groundbreaking breast cancer research, free information and services for women diagnosed with the disease, and access to mammograms for women who need them. Our donations will help more than 2.9 million breast cancer survivors celebrate another birthday this year!

Why We Support the American Cancer Society

Saving lives from breast cancer starts one team, one walker, and one dollar at a time. We know that the American Cancer Society is the leader in the fight to end breast cancer. We know that supporting them will ensure that if you need someone to talk to anytime of the day or night, they'll be there. If your friend is losing her hair from chemo, your mother needs a ride to treatment, or a loved one needs a place to stay when treatment is far from home, they will be there to help.

Join us and together we will walk for a world without 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.
