My mother was diagnosed in July of 2014 with HER2 breast cancer. In an instant our family's world was flipped upside and inside out as mom battled for her life. We relied heavily on our friends and family as we journied through her battle.
We were very fortunate to have amazing institutions and organizations also in our corner in our community.
Mom kicked HER2's ass and I'm proud to say that she is a survivor. It's our turn to give back and pay it forward as no one should have to battle cancer, let alone.
Every dollar helps. Please join me in supporting this important cause.

The 5k Walk and 5k/10k Run brings hundreds of breast cancer patients and survivors from all over the Bay Area together to lace up their sneakers and rally family, friends and neighbors to raise funds to support those who have battled or are battling breast cancer.
Every dollar you raise will be matched by East Bay Community Foundation up to $15,000!!!!
The funds we raise at this event support the on going costs of our programs and the further support the low income/medically under served breast cancer patients and survivors that seek our assistance. We also feel that in addition to the money raised, the more people that come to the event and educate themselves and others about the services we provide will let us get our mission out in the community.
