Albie Aware is an organization that is driven with the passion and purpose to be there every step of the way for breast cancer fighters and survivors through such a tragic life changing event.
That’s just what they did for me as I was diagnosed with breast cancer in February, 2015. I shared my journey on Facebook to keep loved ones and family up to date on a regular basis. I soon noticed that Albie Aware was one of my friends and I received messages from them with offers to help with whatever I needed. I had unbelievable support and it meant the world to me. I couldn’t imagine going through such an event without the support and love that I had from everyone. From people offering to bring me to the doctor, to bringing me food and just lending an ear. But, I am one of the lucky ones. Not every person has the support like I did, and our community is fortunate to have Albie Aware as a local resource. This organization focuses on people who have cancer now, who don’t have the luxury of waiting for a cure. It is my hope that you will support them like I do, so others will not have to face this diagnosis alone.
I made it through the year without missing a golf tournament that I had on my calendar before my diagnosis, including qualifying at two tournaments which brought me to the EWGA finals at Palm Springs in October. I had so many friends and family cheering me on every step of the way, including Albie Aware! It means so much to me to be able to participate in this Sacramento Capital Cup, so that I can give back and to help in this way.
Albie Aware provides assistance for life-saving diagnostic testing, patient advocacy, prevention education and compassionate support to local individuals facing or fighting breast cancer.
We are grateful to the Carolyn Martinez Foundation for their support and sponsorship honoring Carolyn, who lost her battle with breast cancer at a young age.
Your support of me and the Albie Aware Breast Cancer Foundation is deeply appreciated. Thank you for donating whatever you can so that we can save more lives from breast cancer.
I am honored to be able to represent Albie Aware in supporting other breast cancer fighters and survivors in the Sacramento region!
