TuTu Tough For Cancer (Inger & Michele)

Why I am Making Strides

Like so many others, breast cancer is a very personal cause for me and my dear friend Michele. A year ago, Michele and I joined Making Strides to honor our survivor friends and to remember those friends whom breast cancer took from us too soon. Little did either of us know, that within a year of last years walk we would both hear the words “it’s cancer”.  We both were very fortunate that a mammogram caught our cancer early but the words cancer change you as a person forever. Michele was diagnosed first and has endured surgery, chemo therapy and radiation. In the middle of her chemo therapy, I was diagnosed. We couldn’t believe it....I couldn’t believe it. I vividly remember sitting in the waiting room for my follow up mammogram thinking the statistics state 1 in 8 women will be diagnosed, yet 3 of my closest friends have or are still in the middle of their fight. I have always supported this important cause....too many friends or colleagues have been impacted but it has become even more personal. Michele and I ask all of you to join us in this important cause to raise money and awareness of the need to find a cure for all stages of breast cancer. We all deserve to grow old with our loved ones. Michele and I are blessed with the most amazing spouses, families and friends who have lifted us up on our journey! Thank you also to Michele and Amy’s niece for the beautiful tutu picture...captures the spirit perfectly! Much love and appreciation to all of you! 

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. I hope you will consider joining my team and/or making a donation in support of my efforts. 

Together, we can 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.

Join us. Donate today. Or walk with us.
