What am I doing?
I’m running to support Susan G. Komen Kansas City Race for the Cure because I want to make a difference in the fight against breast cancer. As many of you know, breast cancer has greatly affected my life; I run this race and support this cause in memory of my mother, who lost her battle with breast cancer so many years ago. Please help me reach my fundraising goal by making a tax-deductible donation today.
You may donate online with your credit card by clicking the button to the right that reads "Donate to Christina". Your support helps us get another step closer to a world without breast cancer.
The key to survival is early detection. The four simple steps for Breast Self-Awareness are: know your risk, get screened, know what is normal for you, and make healthy lifestyle choices. Remember, breast cancer affects more than just the patient; friends and family need support too.
What does Komen do?
The Greater Kansas City Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure® is playing an integral role in cancer education, screening and treatment. Through events like the Susan G. Komen Kansas City Race for the Cure, the Komen Greater Kansas City Affiliate has invested more than $7 million in community breast health programs in our 17-county area. The High Risk Breast Cancer Center at KU Med, where I go to monitor my own health, is a recipient of Komen funds
