ORGANIZER: The Breast Cancer Research Foundation
3 years ago, my sweet friend, Jennifer, was diagnosed with stage IV metastatic breast cancer at the age of 35! She was told by one doctor she'd be in hospice in 3 months, but she still LIVES! She is funny, intelligent, compassionate and determined to fight! Jennifer has inspired me to take a hobby that I love and give it a bigger meaning by raising money for breast cancer research. I used her story as part of my application, and was selected as one of 10 people nationwide to represent the BCRF.
3 years is FAR too short when you're not even halfway through life. RESEARCH is absolutely critical to extending and improving the lives of people with cancer -- especially now that we are on the precipice of some incredible medical breakthroughs such as immunotherapies.My goal is to raise $3,000 for this cause. Any amount you can give is greatly appreciated.
BCRF remains one of the nation's most fiscally responsible nonprofits. Today the Foundation is the highest rated breast cancer organization in the United States. BCRF is the only breast cancer organization with an "A+" from CharityWatch. About 1 in 8 women will develop invasive breast cancer over the course of her lifetime. So chances are, you or someone you know will be affected by this. Please check out my fundraiser page and click the big DONATE button. Please give what you can. Even $5 will make a difference! It'll only take a couple of minutes. Please help support my dear friend, Jennifer, and all the women living with metastatic breast cancer.
HERE'S HOW YOU CAN CONTRIBUTE:
• Click the big DONATE button and contribute anything you can to support BCRF on behalf of one of our runners.
