This year, I registered for the Komen MORE THAN PINK Walk because I want to make an impact in the fight against breast cancer and need your help! Twelve and a half years ago I was diagnosed, and it was scary and hard, but I was so lucky because friends and family supported me through my journey, I had great doctors who ensured I received the best care, I had insurance that covered the cost of my surgery and treatments, and I was able to benefit from Komen research. Not everyone is as fortunate, so I have made it my business to raise money for Komen to help end breast cancer ever since. I have become a top fundraiser, raising about $10,000 each year, but this year the stakes are so much higher. Because of the coronavirus pandemic, many people have skipped doctor appointments and mammograms resulting in what the National Cancer Institute predicts will be a significant increase in more advanced breast cancer diagnoses in the years to come. This year my goal is bigger. I hope to raise $20,000 and with your help, I know I can do this.
Please give what you can.
And, please share this site with a friend, family member, co-worker, someone who cares about breast cancer and ask them to match your donation. If each of you finds one person, I can meet my goal, and if you send to 2, 3, 5, 10, we can make an even greater impact!
Funds raised will go to support 1)Komen research; 2)Komen's 24 hour call center, which provides helpful information, resources, and referrals; and 3) Komen's assistance programs for those who need help and don't have financial resources of their own.
Thank you for your generosity and stay well!
