My breast cancer journey began in February 2014 when I was 39 years old. You never think something like this can happen to you or your family until one day it does.
I was diagnosed with triple positive breast cancer. After six rounds of chemotherapy from March until May, I had a double mastectomy in July and one full year of herceptin treatments.
It’s 2019 and this year we are celebrating 5 years of being cancer free! Every year I visit oncologist for check-ups. I am thankful to have had wonderful support from my family, my friends, and my St. George's family during my time in treatment. I was fortunate to have good insurance, but not everyone is as lucky as I was. Komen is able to provide mammograms and other resources to those in need. The church health center is one center that Komen helps support with funding from the race.
This year, I registered for the Komen Race for the Cure because I wanted to take action and be More Than Pink™. I want to make an impact in the fight against breast cancer and need your help. Please consider making a tax-deductible donation today in support of my fundraising efforts.
Your support helps us get one step closer to a world without breast cancer. 75 percent of the money raised through the Race stays in the community to fund local breast cancer education, screening and treatment programs. The remaining 25 percent supports groundbreaking breast cancer research.
Together, we are fueling the best science, boldest community and biggest impact in the fight against breast cancer. And we will not stop until this disease is gone forever. That's our promise. Will you please join me in this fight by making a donation today?
