Why I am Making Strides
Because I know I will make a difference in the fight to end breast cancer. I know that by raising funds and walking in the American Cancer Society Making Strides Against Breast Cancer event, I will help save lives from breast cancer.
Because every day I am able to take in another breath, laugh, love, be with my family, spend time with good friends and hear my little’s giggle is another day I am a survivor!
Because I know all too well the chaos and fear it brings into your soul, mind, body and life.
Because I know personally, the impact of what the generosity and kindness of others have on an individual’s life.
Because every little bit really does help.
I believe that one-day breast cancer will never steal another year from anyone’s life. Making Strides is not only my opportunity to join my community to fight back against breast cancer, but it is also a way to inspire hope by raising funds and awareness to help those facing the disease.
Oh, and because my doctor cleared me :)
That’s why I’m walking.
Who I am Making Strides For
I am making strides for myself and any other woman who has had to experience the hell that a Breast Cancer diagnosis brings. I am making strides because I am now a part of the statistics. I am making strides because this is my opportunity to celebrate breast cancer survivors, remember those lost, and help raise funds for groundbreaking research as well as information and services for people fighting breast cancer.
Why I Support the American Cancer Society
Every day, the American Cancer Society helps people take steps to reduce their risk of breast cancer or find it early when it is easiest to treat. They provide free information and services when and where people need it throughout their journey to get well. They are investing in groundbreaking research to find, prevent, treat, and cure breast cancer, and are working to ensure access to mammograms for women who need them.
I have signed up to walk and fundraise with Making Strides Against Breast Cancer. I hope you will consider joining my team and/or making a donation in support of my efforts.
Together, we can make strides to end breast cancer!
