Welcome to our Komen More Than Pink Walk team page for Team Mammo-Grammies. Our team Captain is Cathy Robins Ramos. Cathy is a two time breast cancer survivor. While we have come a long way in preventative, research and survivor rate, we still have a long way to go! 2020 brought on additional challenges with the Covid 19 pandemic, poor economy and loss of federal funding. April 16, 2021, legislation was introduced in the U.S. Senate that would eliminate out-of-pocket costs for diagnostic mammograms that could save lives. This bill drafting was supported by Susan G. Komen Foundation along with drafting a Breast Cancer Bill of Rights with efforts to make certain every person diagnosed with breast cancer is able to receive the best treatments available. In 2020 Team Mammo-Grammies raised $5,033.20 in donations making our team able to make an impact beyond years prior paying for Mammograms, Home Health Care Visits, Diagnostic Biopsies and Cobra Insurance Premiums. In 2021 our team wants to help more but we need your assistance in raising funds for Susan G Komen to be able to continue to be able to work.
Cathy was first diagnosed in 2004 followed by 6 biopsies, 5 years of Tamoxifen until April 1, 20216 when Cathy was diagnosed with an invasive breast cancer. Working with Austin Cancer Center through surgeries, radiation, continued treatment taking Anastrazole and continued testing, Cathy is currently cancer free. Cathy is so blessed to the claim being a five year survivor July 2021. Cathy's mother, Janet, is a 50 year survivor from a 1971 diagnosis.
This team is made up of family. It is the family and our family team that have provided the support. Husband Al a true partner and love of life; children Stephanie, Garrett and Macee have been so supportive and the lights of life for their Mom; Garrett's wife, Cristina and Stephanie's husband Tony along with grandchildren Reid, Juliana, Elizabeth, Isabella, Abigail and Jaxson keep smiles and love flowing. Through it all, Cathy could not have survived without family and through God's continued grace and guidance, we stand together.
Cathy is the owner of Robins Oil & Gas Research. Friends and clients continue to be supportive and encourage continued success.
This year our team name continues to remain the same to encourage women to have regular Mammograms and start early! Be proactive and take charge in early detection and preventative measures.
I hope I can count of your support with every dollar helping us reach our $4,500 goal for 2021. We hope we are able to break the ceiling beyond our goal in preparation for the October 24, 2021 More Than Pink Walk. Thank you!
