What am I doing?
I'm walking to support Susan G. Komen Kansas City Race 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.
I will be walking with the Southwood UCC (United Church of Christ) Team for the Cure on Sunday, August 14, 2016. The Race for the Cure will return to Union Station in Kansas City, Missouri. Our team includes church members and friends, family, and other friends. Please join us in the walk/run.
You may donate online with your credit card by clicking the button to the right that reads "Donate to me". If you don't want to register online, please call, email, or see me, and I will forward your donation to the Komen organization. Your support helps us get another step closer to a world without breast cancer.
Your breast health?
The greatest risk factors for breast cancer are being female and growing older. Breast cancer knows no boundary, be it age, gender, socio-economic status or geographic location. One in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime. That's one in eight within your company, school and organization!
The key to survival is early detection. 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. I am a breast cancer survivor due to my annual mammogram, early diagnosis, and excellent treatment by my oncology doctors and staff.
What does Komen do?
For more than 25 years, Komen for the Cure has played a critical role in every major advance in the fight against breast cancer, transforming how the world talks about and treats this disease, and helping to turn millions of breast cancer patients into breast cancer survivors.
Over the next 25 years, an estimated 25 million women around the world will be diagnosed with breast cancer if we don't find a cure. Komen will not stop until we discover and deliver the cures. That's our promise.
We Will Find the Cure!
Love and Peace,
