Why I am Making Strides
Like so many others, breast cancer is a very personal cause for me. It gives me the chance to make a difference and to honor those touched by breast cancer by raising funds for groundbreaking research, and services for people dealing with breast cancer. I believe that there will come a day where the pain caused by breast cancer is a thing of the past. And until it arrives, I’m walking to inspire hope to those facing the disease and raising money for the American Cancer Society’s Making Strides Against Breast Cancer event to help save lives from breast cancer. I hope you’ll consider signing up too.
Why I Support the American Cancer Society
Two years ago, I lost my mentor and great friend Karen Olson to this terrible disease. Although most of us are acutely aware of how deadly this disease is and how many lives it claims yearly. The reality of its deadliness doesn’t seem to stick until it becomes personal.
Every day, the American Cancer Society helps people take steps to reduce their risk of breast cancer or find it early when it is easiest to treat. They provide free information and services when and where people need it throughout their journey to get well. They are investing in innovative research to find, prevent, and treat breast cancer.
I have signed up to walk and fundraise for Making Strides Against Breast Cancer event. I hope you will consider joining my team and/or making a donation in support of my efforts.
Together, we can make a difference.
