Making Strides of Boston

My Saving Grace

This year changed my life in a lot of ways. I received my COVID vaccinations, welcomed my first, beautiful grandchild, Grace, into the world, and was diagnosed with Stage II invasive ductal carcinoma.  To say I wasn't prepared for the latter is an understatement, and the uncertainty of this new experience was overwhelming. Now, over two months since my diagnosis, I have a good treatment plan has been going well, and I am feeling strong, confident and optimistic for what is to come.  I couldn't be more thankful for my team of doctors, family, friends, co-workers, and community for helping me navigate this unforeseen chapter of my life.

My family and I have decided to participate in the 2021 Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk in Boston on September 26, to help fund the future of breast cancer research and programs. Funds raised through the Making Strides movement allow the American Cancer Society to serve breast cancer patients and their families when they need it most, even during a global pandemic. 

Believe us, every dollar really does count, so we're asking for your help. Please donate or join our team today, because together we can end breast cancer.

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.
