Making Strides of Long Island

HER2Day - HERE Tomorrow

On March 16, 2021 at the age of 35, I was diagnosed with Stage II Triple Positive Breast Cancer.  After 6 rounds of chemo and immunotherapy, my 4cm tumor shrunk to where it is no longer visible.  There is still a long road ahead of me with a lumpectomy, radiation, a year of infusions, and years of pills.  But my life has essentially been saved by the incredible research that has been done on Her2+ cancers.  Because of the donations made to Breast Cancer research, drugs like Herceptin have come along that without, I wouldn't have much time left.

 

I plan to walk in October to celebrate what will be the start to the end of my cancer journey.  I hope you will sign up and walk with me as I'd love to have a big group to celebrate.  After the walk, we will gather at my house for a real celebration.  If you are so inclined, please donate to the cause so the next generation can benefit the way I have.  Thank you to the Perlmutter Cancer Center for saving my life.

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.
