I support Susan G. Komen Virginia Blue Ridge

Susan G. Komen Virginia Blue Ridge

Raised: $0Remaining: $1000

This is my 8th year that I have been a part of the "Susan G. Komen Virginia Blue Ridge Race For The Cure."  I am also an 8 year BREAST CANCER SURVIVOR!

I have always been persistent with my medical treatment if I felt something was wrong and feel certain my persistency saved my life in 2002 when I insisted a mole be removed which turned out to be Melanoma. So, when I found a large lump in my breast in 2009 which didn't show up on a mammogram or ultrasound I insisted on a biopsy which showed abnormal breast cancer cells.  Again my persistency  found my cancer early and my treatment was a lumpectomy and medication for 5 years.

Having a daughter, son, and a granddaughter; I pray that one day a cure for Breast Cancer will be found and that they will never have to hear those words, "You have Breast Cancer!"  Fundraising teaches you to appreciate what you have and gives you the ability to help others and make a difference in our community. 

At some point in your life, Breast Cancer will affect someone your know; so please join me in this fight and make a donation today by clicking on my link -

Thank you for your support and may God Bless you and your family!
