What am I doing?
I'm walking (and with my bad back this is no easy task) to support the NC Triangle Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure because I want to make a difference in the fight against breast cancer. Please help me reach my fundraising goal by making a tax-deductible donation today. Did I say tax-deductable? Yes I did.
I have taken the Challenge and have committed to raise at least $1000. This should be easy. I only need 40 people to make a $25 donation. Will you please help me with this challenge?
You may donate online with your credit card by clicking the "Donate" button near my thermometer on this page. Your support helps us get another step closer to a world without breast cancer.
Your breast health?
The greatest risk factors for breast cancer are being female and growing older. Breast cancer knows no boundary, be it age, gender, socio-economic status or geographic location. One in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime. That's one in eight within your company, school and organization!
The key to survival is early detection. Three simple steps for early detection are regular mammograms, clinical exams and breast self-exams. And, remember, breast cancer affects more than just the patient; friends and family need support too.
What does Komen do?
For more than 25 years, Komen for the Cure has played a critical role in every major advance in the fight against breast cancer ? transforming how the world talks about and treats this disease, and helping to turn millions of breast cancer patients into breast cancer survivors.
Over the next 25 years, an estimated 25 million women around the world will be diagnosed with breast cancer if we don't find a cure. Komen will not stop until we discover and deliver the cures. That's our promise.
Thank you so much for being a part of our Komen Team this year. It really means a lot to us knowing so many of Vickie's family, co-workers and friends continue to support her even though she now resides in Heaven with our mom and dad. We will be sending additional updates as race day gets closer. keep it real while keeping the faith is our motto.
