Making Strides of Las Vegas Presented by OptumCare Cancer Care

Utter's Udders

Why I am Making Strides

Like so many others, breast cancer is a very personal cause for me. My mother, Sandie Utter, was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2014 with metastisis to the liver. She underwent chemotherapy to shrink the masses in her left breast and lymph nodes. The chemo eliminated the small spot on her liver. In January 2015, she chose to have a double mastectomy due to the increased risk from the form of cancer she had. Then, on June 29, 2017, Sandie learned that the cancer had returned to her liver and was very aggressive. Due to the serverity, there were not any treatment options and she succumed to the cancer on July 14, 2017. I walk in her memory to raise awareness and funds so that others may not have to experience what our family, and so many other families, have experienced.

It gives me the chance to make a difference and to honor those touched by breast cancer by raising funds for groundbreaking research, and services for people dealing with breast cancer. I believe that there will come a day where the pain caused by breast cancer is a thing of the past. And until it arrives, I’m walking to inspire hope to those facing the disease and raising money for the American Cancer Society's Making Strides Against Breast Cancer event to help save lives from breast cancer. I hope you’ll consider signing up too.

Team Utter's Udders will be walking every year in both Indianapolis, IN and Las Vegas, NV. Please join me, my dad (Sandie's husband), Bob, and my brother (Sandie's son), Bo, at either event. Brie and her dad will be wearing cow costumes, leading the Utter's Udders Herd!

(The team name, Utter's Udders, comes from my mom's collection of cow memorabilia which stemmed from an inside joke between her & her mother)

 

Why I Support the American Cancer Society

Every day, the American Cancer Society helps people take steps to reduce their risk of breast cancer or find it early when it is easiest to treat. They provide free information and services when and where people need it throughout their journey to get well. They are investing in innovative research to find, prevent, and treat breast cancer.

I have signed up to walk and fundraise for Making Strides Against Breast Cancer event. We will walk in both Indianapolis, IN and Las Vegas, NV (fundraising will be done on the LV page) I hope you will consider joining my team and/or making a donation in support of my efforts and in memory of my mother, Sandie.

Together, 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.
