Welcome to my fundraising page.
I will be captain of the J team this year. I hope that we will have a lot of members join us in either walking or running for this cause, which is so close to my heart. You may not be aware, but there is a higher incidence of breast cancer among Eastern European Jewish women. That's one of the reasons that I wanted to bring this event to The J community.
As most of you know, 1 in 8 women, in the general public, will be affected by breast cancer in their lifetime. I was one of those women. It was through mammography that my cancer was found and found very early. The funds raised for Susan G. Komen will help other women get mammograms -- early -- and will help save countless lives. It may not help them avoid breast cancer but it will minimize the devastating effects of the disease if caught early.
I hope that you will help us to reach the fundraising goal of $2500 so that the research, treatments, and support services provided by Susan G. Komen can continue to help others affected by breast cancer.
Many of you may question where the funds go. I can tell you that most of the funds (about 75%) stays in Kansas City with only about 10% used for admin costs. Any donation you make will be put to good use!
Please be as generous as you can. Donate in my honor, donate in memory of someone that you have lost, donate to celebrate someone's survival. Any amount is wonderful.
Thanks in advance for the donation. We so appreciate it!
Debbie, John and Samantha
