Please help save the life of another young mother ...

Friends and Family,

As many of you know, I am a breast cancer survivor.¬† I‚€™m now also a member of the Susan G. Komen Charlotte Board of Directors.¬† I haven‚€™t asked for any donations in a¬†few years, and am hoping you can support my participation in the Race for the Cure on October 5th.

¬†For those of you who don‚€™t know my story, I was prescribed a baseline mammogram when I turned 36 years old.¬† I sat on the prescription for about 6 months because I ‚€œdidn‚€™t have time‚€ to get it done.¬† When I finally made the time late in 2006, they found stage 1 breast cancer.¬† I was so fortunate I had the mammogram when I did ‚€“ it was caught early, but it was also relatively aggressive.¬† So I spent most of 2007 going through surgery, chemotherapy and radiation, and then spent 5 years on hormone therapy.¬†

I had 3 and 5 year old boys at the time, and for quite awhile wondered if I would live to see them grow up.¬† You can imagine how hard that was emotionally.¬† I spent 9 months doing nothing but treatments, spending time with my family, and work ‚€“ I was fortunate to have a wonderful husband who picked up everything else our family needed, and friends and family willing to jump in and help.¬†

I was young.¬† I was healthy.¬† I had zero risk factors for breast cancer.¬† Yet I had it.¬† And they found it ‚€¶ with a mammogram.¬† Unfortunately not everyone can afford a mammogram.¬† By donating $200, you will be providing a mammogram to perhaps another mother of young children, and you can perhaps save her life.¬† Just like a mammogram saved my life.

Please consider a donation of whatever you can afford.  Every dollar helps in the fight against breast cancer.

Thank you,

Michelle
