Making Strides of Oakland and Macomb Counties

Karen's DD Divas

 

Hello everyone and thank you for visiting our Karen’s DD Diva team page!!

Most of you know why this cause is near and dear to our heart. For those that don’t, our story began 37 years ago when we lost our mother to breast cancer. She was only 29 years old and despite how fiercely she fought, she was up against a battle that could simply not be won. Over the years technology and medical science has made leaps and bounds in fighting this devastating disease. There are more and more survivors that win their battle against breast cancer. In fact, a few years ago thankfully Amber’s mother-in-law became one of them.

We, together with our family and friends, have made it our mission to continue the battle our mother could not. As mothers ourselves to two beautiful little girls, Aubrey & Reese, our determination is greater than ever to introduce them to a world that is cancer free. Aubrey lost one grandmother to this disease but because of the incredible work being done at ACS she did not lose both.  

Over the years, with the extreme generosity of our amazing family and friends We have been able to contribute over $85,000 to this battle breast cancer. But we are not finished yet! This year we will be planning a few fundraisers and to keep up the momentum so stay tuned for dates & information. Our daughters are also getting involved by making special gifts for the survivors at the walk with their classmates, friends, and family.

We hope you will consider joining us this year as we walk in loving memory of our mother, and to support the warriors who are still fighting as well as the rock stars like Amber’s mother-in-law who have fought and won. You are the true reason we have been successful over the years and we thank you for enabling us to honor our mother in a way she would be proud.

Love,

Amber & Heather

How Fundraising Impacts Your Community

Cancer hits far too close to home, so the funds you raise will help do the same. Through services and resources like free rides to chemo, free places to stay near hospitals, and a live 24/7 helpline, cancer patients and their families will feel the love. Here’s how recent money raised has been put to incredible uses.

As of January 2022, we have invested $71 M for potentially lifesaving breast cancer specific research grants.

We have received over 250,000 calls and chats from patients and caregivers seeking support in 2021

Cancer patients benefited from ACS transportation support through our Road TO Recovery program and transportation grants in 2021, with nearly 229,000 rides provided.

Our Sponsors

Many thanks to our generous sponsors for fueling the American Cancer Society's fight against 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.
