Making Strides of Las Vegas

Mel's Breasties

Imagine getting breast cancer at the age of 32 ... it doesn’t run in your family, yet here you are being told you have “it”. Well that’s the her story. Mel had it, she caught it early and completely chemo therapy and radiation ... basically kicked cancers ass!!!! Mel was in remission and cancer free for 15 years. 

Fast forward to July 2018 when Mel feels like something is wrong. She gets testing done to find out not only is “it” back... but it’s more aggressive than the first time and in both breasts with two different types of cancer! At 47 years old and 15 years cancer free, Mel started her 2nd fight on September 5th and sadly lost her fight on January 8th, 2019. So when asked why we're making strides ..... SHE is the reason. I always told her she wasn’t fighting alone and we will continue to fight in her name and in her honor. We'll do whatever we can to raise awareness and show our support! Sis, I know you’re watching and supporting from the heavens ..... We love you Sis! Forever Mel’s Breasties always ALL ways!

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.
