Moving on and helping others

One in eight women are diagnosed with breast cancer each year.  

Four out of five women in my family alone have been diagnosed with breast cancer over the years.  Two of us have had breast cancer twice.  One died at the age of 52.  All of us have the BRCA-1 gene mutation. 

Breast cancer runs in our family. 

I was first diagnosed in early 2009 at the age of 42 and had no health insurance.  I received a grant provided by Komen Charlotte to pay for my mammogram and biopsy.  I had a lumpectomy followed by chemo and radiation treatment and was fine.  Six years later at age 48, I was diagnosed again.  I was lucky that I had health insurance this time.  I had a double mastectomy and reconstruction surgery.  Ten years after my first diagnosis, I am doing well.

I didn't think I could move on from my sister's death and still haven’t in many ways.  I don’t want others to go through what she and the rest of my family did, so I am participating in the Race for the Cure for the 10th consecutive year.  Ten years....

Please help me raise funds and make a donation if you feel inclined.  

You could save someone’s life.

Think about that....
