For the past 16 years, I have registered as part of the Bank of America team for the Komen Charlotte Race for the Cure because I want to make an impact in the fight against breast cancer. This year we are going virtual!
I lost my mom to this disease at a very young age of 52. It saddens me to know my children, Steven and Lindsay, along with her other grandchildren, didn't have the opportunity to know what a wonderful mother and grandmother she would have been. It is a bittersweet moment when our now great-grandchildren come into our lives and we realize they will not have the warm, caring arms of Hattie to hold them tight. All of the great-grandchildren in her life would be so fortunate to have her with us.
THIS IS WHY I FIGHT!
Our team name is Hattie's Heroes...after my mom. This is our 8th year as a Hattie's Heroes team, and last year we were able to raise over $20,000.00!
This year I am going for it! It is my 52nd year, the year in which we lost mom, and I would like to honor her by raising $52,000.00!
This would have meant so much to my mom. I know she is smiling at the idea of making this world a better place. The thought of making her proud through contributing to this important cause keeps me motivated!
Please consider making a tax-deductible donation today in support of my fundraising efforts.

It takes a village to make this happen!
I truly thank you in advance- I long for the day when we can look back and say no other mom, daughter, friend, sister, aunt, niece, grandmother and now great- grandmother was lost due to this terrible disease.
