My Story HAS CHANGED

I reach out to you today as a dedicated Susan G. Komen Foundation fundraiser and faithful supporter of its very important mission to advance breast cancer research, education, screening, and treatment. In 2019 I graciously accepted an invitation to participate on the Houston Susan G. Komen board of directors to advise, assist and aid in our efforts to support Foundation initiatives in the Houston area. I continue today on the Houston Komen Leadership Council. I also proudly serve as Cheniere Energy, Inc.’s long-standing corporate sponsor for Breast Cancer Month activities. Throughout my many years of dedicated engagement and participation with Houston Komen efforts, I thank you all for your generosity and appreciate your support very much over the years.​ 

And so, it should be no surprise that I am again gearing up for giving my all toward supporting this important organization and ask each of you to join me. But this year is different. This year, my dedication is now a crusade. This year, my passion is so personal, that the significance of the Susan G. Komen Foundation’s work is forefront in my personal life. This year, I’m gearing up to give, because this year, breast cancer has found its way to me.
 
I have triple-negative invasive breast cancer. A diagnosis that I am still grappling to understand. A diagnosis that I received only recently, but a process that feels like an eternity. And the weight of the diagnosis is heavy in my heart and in my mind.
 
I began treatment at the MD Anderson Cancer Center on Monday, May 24, 2021 and will endure many months of carefully designed chemotherapy treatments, surgery, radiation and recovery. I have much to understand and will be simultaneously learning how to cope, and how to fight.
 
It will be the fight of my life.
 
My family (Austin and Ali) and I ask that you please join me again in contributing to the Susan G. Komen Foundation this year. This organization provides hope for so many; hope for me. An organization that creates a community; a community that I and so many others need very much. Every contribution helps. Every contribution propels the Foundation’s efforts to educate more people, support research and provide community advocacy.

And I humbly ask for one more small favor. I implore you to have mammograms regularly and/or encourage those you love to do so. Finding breast cancer early reduces your risk of dying from the disease by 25-30% or more. Mammograms can save your life. I believe it has mine.
 
I am fighting for me. For my family. And for you.

Updates on my journey will be on CaringBridge.
 
Please join me in this very important fight to eradicate this disease for future generations. You may donate at the link below. Thank you in advance for your generosity this year. 
 
With all my strength, courage, love and optimism,
Hilary
