Breast cancer never sleeps. It affects 1 in 8 women during their lifetime. ONE IN EIGHT. We’ve had beyond our fair share of loved ones that have faced this disease, some successfully, and others, not. Over the 13 years that we’ve been raising money for Susan G. Komen, we have seen progress: the genetic testing has improved, surgeries, less invasive, targeted therapies for different strains of the breast cancer have been further developed, symptoms from treatment are better managed, minority women with higher risk are becoming better informed and getting screened, and mortality rates are headed lower. Komen has a bold goal to reduce mortality rates 50% by 2026. The Race for the Cure series will help make that possible, as 25% of funds raised go directly to the research. The other 75% goes to treatment support, navigation, advocacy, and education. The Race for the Cure is Komen Charlotte’s largest fundraiser during the year, providing for 50-60% of the annual budget. Your donations matter.
Thanks in advance for your prayers, kindness, and support.
For the Cure,
Mike and Shari Lynn
