Fundraising Honor Roll


June 27, 2022 ~ UPDATE~

So I want to take a minute to update you. So today I went for my yearly check up with my Breast Surgeon. It was a surprising update. At this time they have found several cysts in the right breast. I know what your thinking how is that possible with a double  masectomy..well it is...since they didn't remove the whole breast and do expanders there is still some breast tissue left around the breast wall. With that said the doctor is confident that its negative and not to worry but that is much easier said then done. On July 12th I will be going for another round of biopsys to test these cysts. In the unlikely event they are not negative I will find out what my next steps will be. If they are negative we will monitor and possibly treat to get ride of them. At this time its kinda hard to stay positive because the last time I went through this they told me the same thing and it turned out to be cancer. 

               ~My Story~
My journey began back in Oct of 2020. I had gone for my annual pap and my doctor asked if I had gone for my baseline mamo. Of course I had not gone so I made an appointment. The doctor called me back about a week later and said he didn’t like the results and wanted me to go for a sono. At this point he wasn’t too concerned because it was my first mamo. So I made an appointment and went for the sono. I get a call about a week later and was told that the results are not definitive so he wanted me to go for a sono with biopsy. So once again I make an appointment get the sono with biopsy which hurt like hell. A few days later he calls me and says he wants me to see a breast specialist. Now I start to worry...what is going on...so in the middle of December at this point I meet with my breast specialist. We go over everything...she says to me she wants me to go for an MRI with and without contrast...so here i am once again going for another test...a few days later I get a call that the results don't look good and she now wants another MRI with and without contrast with a biopsy in several spots. So once again I go for another test..lone and behold on Jan 15th, 2021 at 12:10 in the afternoon I got the call that I was diagnosed with Breast Cancer. I am 1 in 5 women who developed breast cancer without having a mutated BRACA gene. So the next step was to meet with her in her office to go over the results and discuss the course of action. A little over three weeks later on Feb 16, 2021 I had a 9 hour surgery. I had opted for a double mastectomy with Diep Flap reconstruction. The whole process affected me emotionally, mentally and physically as well as my husband and children. I am now cancer free thankfully and a strong survivor. This walk means a lot to me and my family. If you can help with even a small donation that would be amazing and if you’re interested in walking with me I would love that!

 

The funds I’m raising will sustain critical research and provide services for people trying to cope with their breast cancer experience. Believe me, every dollar really does count, so I’m asking you to please donate today. Together, we can make a big difference in the fight against breast cancer.

 

I'm supporting the American Cancer Society and you can, too!

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.
