BENEFITING: BRIGHT PINK

ORGANIZER: BRIGHT PINK

EVENT: Bank of America Chicago Marathon 2016 - Bright Pink

EVENT DATE: Oct 09, 2016

Dianne Gunther

THE STORY:

I am running the Chicago Marathon for Bright Pink because Bright Pink has had a personal impact on my life.  In 2011, I tested positive for the BRCA1 gene mutation, which meant that I had an 87% chance of developing breast cancer during my lifetime.  

Thanks in a large part to the support and resources that I received through Bright Pink, I made the decision to have a prophylactic bilateral mastectomy in October 2015, which means I had my healthy breast tissue removed to lower my risk of developing cancer.  I can now proudly say that my lifetime risk of breast cancer is less than 5%.

Bright Pink not only supports women at high risk, but also aims is to reach the 52 million young women in the United States between the ages of 18 and 45 with life-saving breast and ovarian health programs, thereby empowering this and future generations of women to live healthier, happier, and longer lives.

I volunteer as a Support Ambassador and I am running for Bright Pink to pay it forward, so that other women in my situation will feel empowered to learn more about their family health history and to take control of their own health.  

Please consider donating to this great cause, and take the first step in taking control of your personal health by assessing your risk today: http://www.assessyourrisk.org/.
