Why I am Making Strides

Hi! Welcome to our Team Page! We formed this team because this is important to us. Research is THE most important lead to a cure for this horrible disease.

As most of you probably know-I am a two time cancer slayer. Breast cancer in 2009 and uterine cancer in 2108 (most likely caused by my breast cancer treatments). So I have thrown everything but the kitchen sink at this disease. Double mastectomy-chemo-radiation- countless reconstructive surgeries-complete hysterectomy-more chemo and more radiation. And I won't get into all of the complications and hurdles my family and I have faced. Am I am sick of it. I am sick and tired of hearing about more friends being diagnosed. I am sick and tired of people dying because of it. Most recently my sister in law Dee-at the age of 55. WE NEED TO END THIS!

That is why I am partnering with The American Cancer Society's Making Strides Against Breast Cancer!  The money raised at this event will go for research and providing support to cancer patients. 1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer. That is way too many.

Please join me in eradicating this disease!! If you are able-please join our team and walk with us on October 19!  If you can't walk with us-please consider making a tax deductible donation-and even asking your work if they make matching donations! Everyone knows someone affected by breast cancer.

Thank you for your time and consideration and if at all possible-I would love to walk beside you on October 19!

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.
