Why I am Making Strides

 

On  August 28 , 2000 my Doctor ordered some routine tests that would save my life.  She had no suspicions  of illness it was protocol for my age.  

I scheduled the appointment for October 13, 2000 9 a.m.  (because I was taking that day as a vacation day)     I had notice something about two weeks before  when I was on my belated “Honeymoon” but told myself it is nothing!  They will tell me if it’s something.   I thought I was too young to have breast cancer that is something “old Ladies” get and I was only 40.

I will ever forgot the Radiologist’s face,  the sound of urgency in his voice or the words he said…. “I am not saying it’s something and I am not saying it’s nothing I am saying you need to see a breast surgeon.”  That was the moment I knew.

Now 18 years later, I am in awe and moved to tears by the love and support all of you show each year.  I again will start the team ball rolling with a penny a day  for every day  (Penny Challenge) since  October 13, 2000 the date I was diagnosed.

Survivorship is getting costly  ($65.07) , but never as costly as the alternative…. 

If you are still reading please think about signing up on one of PSEG Long Island’s Making Strides teams of course it would be great if you choose the Pink Transformers.  Then think about taking the Penny Challenge  for a loved one …..

 

Why I Support the American Cancer Society

I turned to ACS for support the first person I spoke with was a “Reach for Recovery” volunteer,   she told me about her experience and what I might experience, things like it’s important to have a pillow in the car since I will need to put under the seatbelt for the ride home after surgery and to  lighten the load of my handbag  (never carry more than 5 lbs.) .

 

When I started  chemo she told me about “Look Good” Feel Better” another ACS program where I learned to make it look like I had eye lashes even though they had all jumped ship.

Welcome to our Team Page. We've formed a team because this cause is important to us. We want to help. And walking and raising money in our local American Cancer Society Making Strides Against Breast Cancer event is the best way we can do that. We all have different reasons for participating but we share a determination to help save lives from breast cancer.

There are so many ways that the money our team raises helps. It’s helping fund innovative research. It's providing free information for people dealing with the disease. It’s providing rides to treatment and places to stay for people who have to seek treatment far from home. In short, our money is helping save lives. Consider donating to our team and helping advance the cause.

How We Support the American Cancer Society

Of course we walk in the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer event. And we solicit donations from family, friends, and other supporters. But we also schedule fundraisers in lead-up to the big event. Bake-sales, car washes, and countless other types of events. And we promote those on social media, through Facebook and Twitter, by word of mouth, and through flyers at work and around the neighborhood. The success of fundraising events depends on two things - hard work and getting the word out. And we're out to do both. Keep an eye out for our fundraising events.

Join us. Donate today. Or walk with us.
