THE STORY:

Today Becca's Breast Friends (@BexBreastFrndz) along side Becca are striving to raise 18,888 in honor of her 8th year as a Breast Cancer Survivor!! This year we wanted to expand our support system with 8 DOLLARS FOR CHANGE.

The Challenge: Raise 18,888 in 88 days. Starting July 23, 2014 and ending Septemeber 18th!

The BexBreastFrndz mission is to help END breast cancer. Every year we raise money through events and walking 39.3 miles. For the last 7 years in support of Becca and all affected by breast cancer our team has walked in San Francisco and Santa Barbara. This year we decided that it is time to take this national! We are going walk in Charlotte!! WIth this geographic change and some inspiration from #WDS2014 and #theformermillionaire we decided we should up our game and that is why we created 8DollarsForChange!

This journey started 8 years ago for Becca and @BexBreastFrndz........

2006: At age 23 Becca was Diagnosed with Breast Cancer on December 21st. She found the lump herself! (Check yourself!)
2007: Multiple Surgeries, 6 months of chemotherapy, the start of 5 years of hormone theraphy
2008: Reconstructive Surgery, hair grew back and (oh those) hot flashes. Married the man who stood by me through it all!
2009: Jan 14th - Diagnosed a second time with Breast Cancer at 25 years old. Unsuccessful fertility treatments, 3 months chemotherapy, 6 weeks radiation, and the restarting of 5 years of hormone therapy. 
2010: Symptoms of hormone therapy PEAK: nausea, hot flashes, aches and pains
2011: DIEP Flap reconstruction and 3 months of recovery. Changed career paths and started nursing school.
2012: Lump removal from reconstructed breast - This time it was benign!
2013: Still fighting hormone treatment side effects and got her first oncology RN postition!
2014: This is her last year of hormone treatment. Still standing here today able to say she is cancer free and able to make a change.

With just 8 dollars you can make a difference!
