What am I doing?
I'm walking to support the Northwest Louisiana Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure because I want to make a difference in the fight against breast cancer. Please help me reach my fundraising goal by making a tax-deductible donation today.
You can donate online with your credit card by clicking the button above my fundraising thermometer or by giving a check or cash direct to me.
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.
Why am I doing this?
Because breast cancer can strike anyone. Young or old, men or women. My Grandfather had breast cancer in the 40's. He beat this horrible disease and so can anyone else who gets it. Early detection is the key! Three simple steps for early detection are regular mammograms, clinical exams and breast self-exams. And, remember, breast cancer affects more than just the patient; friends and family need support too.
So in support of a brave breast cancer survivor or in the memory of one, please do what you can to support this worthy cause.
One day there will be no more cancer to worry about. Until then, we continue to fight and walk and pray.
