Making Strides of The MS Gulf Coast

Mel's Who Dat Krewe

You might not know, but we are walking the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk MS Gulf Coast in October in Honor of my cousin Melinda Leger.  Two years ago, at the age of 56, Melinda was diagnosed with aggressive metastatic Breast Cancer. Melinda was fortunate enough to have a Doctor that recognized the threat immediately and initiated a rapid response. After 4 months of aggressive treatment plan that included Herceptin, Taxotere, Perjeta and Carboplatin.   I’m happy to say Melinda has finished the plan and is now on a lifetime maintenance plan that includes treatment every 3 weeks of Herceptin and Perjeta. 

Melinda’s successful treatment plan is a result of the research that has been funded by those who have walked, donated, supported Making Strides in the past. The funds not only help with research, but also helps provide transportation, resources, and so much more! I am walking to continue the work so we can find a long term solution to breast cancer. Please help me continue to help people like Melinda by deciding to donate or walk with us on Mel’s Who Dat Krewe.  We will make a difference.

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.
