I also registered to run in Richmond's May 10th Race fot the Cure to support Komen's Promise to save lives and end breast cancer forever by empowering people, ensuring quality of care for all and energizing science to find the cures. My Aunt Gwen lost her life to breast cancer and I'm only 35 and have already had 2 "scares."
Today one in eight women will be stricken with breast cancer in her lifetime and the more we raise, the more the Richmond Affiliate of the Susan G. Komen for the Cure can give back to fund vital breast cancer education, screening and treatment programs in our own community and support the national search for a cure.
Please join me in the fight by pledging in support of my participation in the Race or contributing generously to the Richmond Affiliate. Your tax-deductible contribution will fund innovative outreach and awareness programs for medically underserved communities in Richmond and national breast cancer research. It is faster and easier than ever to support this great cause - you can make a donation online by simply clicking on the link at the bottom of this message. If you would prefer, you can also send your tax-deductible contribution to the address listed below. Whatever you can give will help! I truly appreciate your support and will keep you posted on my progress.
Thank you so much for your time and support in the fight against breast cancer! Every step counts!
