This photo was taken on February 13th, 2003 after the birth of our youngest daughter Kelley. A few months later, Jen was diagnosed with breast cancer. She died in October of the same year. Kelley was 8 months old. Laura was 6. Allison was 3.
Since 2004, we as a family have raised over $300,000 for the Susan G. Komen Foundation. Laura, Allison and Kelley have all taken their turn leading the family fundraising effort over the last 8 years while they were each in high school.
Kelley is now 18 and heading off to college in the fall, so I'm taking the baton back and carrying forward.
Please help us to continue all of the work Komen is doing to help with early detection programs, especially in underserved communities; and to provide funds for research of treatment and eradication of the disease.
