My Story

I have participated in the Race for the Cure since I was diagnosed with breast cancer 24 years ago.  At the time, my kids were 5 and 7.  I was worried that they would have to grow up without a mom.  Thankfully, after a year of active treatment and 5 years of pills, I was in remission, where I have stayed.  I was so thankful for the treatments and studies that Komen pioneered which gave me a chance to live long enough to see my kids grow up. That is why I fundraise for Komen.  I want to give every woman the chance to not get breast cancer, or to survive it if they do get the dreaded disease.  As of now, 1 in 8 women will get breast cancer during their lives.

The picture on my page is from several years ago when we did the race with my daughter.  My son had already gone off to college so he was not able to participate.  Prior to that, we had always run every race as a family.  Since the race was virtual last year, and I don't have a photo, I decided to go retro.  After all, my kids are a large part of the reason that I fundraise.  I am happy to report that both of my kids became engaged this year.   I am even more thankful that it looks like I will be able to see them both get married next year.  Since being diagnosed, this was always my goal!

I want to make an impact in the fight against breast cancer and need your help. Please consider making a tax-deductible donation today in support of my fundraising efforts.

Your support helps us get one step closer to a world without breast cancer. Funds raised help support breakthrough research and help for the women and men facing breast cancer today who need our support now, as much as ever.  Whether it’s emotional support via Komen’s helpline, financial support through Komen’s treatment assistance program, or help navigating their care journey, Komen will be there for them.

In moments like this, your generosity can make a real difference. Together, let’s show breast cancer patients there’s a whole community standing by their side.

Will you please join me in this fight by making a donation today?
