Pink on Parade
Thank you for visiting my fundraising page!
Donating through this website is simple, fast and totally secure. It is also the most efficient way to support my fundraising efforts.
Each and every one of us has been touched in some way by this horrible disease; we all seem to know someone that has fought the battle. Unfortuantely, there's no getting away from it. Breast Cancer is a part of everyones lives in one way or another.
When I was young, my grandmother was diagnosed with breast cancer and receievd a radical mastectomy; she survived and lived into her late 80's. I had no idea that one day, I too would be diagnosed with breast cancer. Fortunately for me though, I had great insurance that provided me with the means for early testing and treatment. There are also better dection and treatment methods now. My grandmother didn't really have many options. I am happy to say that I am a Survivor of nearly 8 years!
I cannot stress enough, the importance of self examination and early detection. Breast Cancer knows no age and it knows no gender. Men too are being diagnosed with breast cancer as well as young women and children. But, they too can fight the battle and win through early detection and treatment.
Please join me in supporting this amazing cause. Every dollar donated will help save a life! The money raised will help those with little or no insurance receive life saving diagnostics and treatment that will save their lives.
I would also like to invite you to come walk with me at this amazing event Pink on Parade! It will be on October 29, 2011, 9am at Fairmount Park in Riverside. (Registration is at 730am)
Thanks to all for your support -- and don't forget to forward this to anyone who you think might want to donate too!
