Will You Help?

day2

1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime. 

In the US, 1 woman is diagnosed with breast cancer every 3 minutes.

These statistics are startling and terrifying when you start to think of all the women who are important in your life who may get breast cancer. Many of you know someone who is fighting that battle right now. Many of you have already lost someone to cancer that you loved dearly.

After my recent diagnosis with thyroid cancer I feel it is more important than ever to keep on fundraising so no one has to battle cancer ever again. That is why I chose to walk in my 3rd Susan G. Komen 3-Day for a Cure! I will once again walk 60 miles in just 3 Days and commit to fundraise at least $2,300.

Why choose this event? Because of the amazing journey and the even more amazing amounts of money raised for cancer research! Yes, it goes to breast cancer research, but did you know that breast cancer research has resulted in many life saving treatments for other cancers too?

This will be my 3rd time walking in the 3.Day and my first time walking after my own cancer diagnosis. I'm actually still undergoing treatments and I'm not sure where the energy for 60 miles will come from, but I know it will come... and I know I have to DO something!

Will you help me and the millions of other cancer survivors who deserve to have a lifetime with their friends and family by making a donation?

Please take a moment to visit my fundraising page and make a tax-deductible donation. No amount is too small or too big when we are working together to save lives! Please pass this on to your friends and family to give them a chance to help too!

Hugs & Love...
Christina
