BENEFITING: BREAST CANCER COALITION OF ROCHESTER INC
EVENT DATE: May 11, 2014
Thanks for visiting my fundraising page.
As most of you already know I have been on this breast cancer journey on and off for over the past 22 years. In my short life time I have endured many surgeries, radiation and chemo - Not just once but twice. 5 years ago I learned that the disease had progressed into the bones and I was diagnosed with Stage IV Metastatic breast cancer. 1 year ago - progression to the liver. Today my most recent scans show even more progression but still I am standing and ready to fight the good fight!
This past winter I realized that I was not going to be able to win this fight alone and I reached out to the Breast Cancer Coalition of Rochester. I enrolled myself in many of their free wellness classes, attended many insightful seminars and have met so many great people (even some that I am happy to call my friends). It has by far, been one of the best decisions that I have made in my fight against this disease.
The BCCR is the only independently operated organization focused solely on breast cancer in the greater Rochester area and EVERY dollar they raise stays right here in our community to benefit those of us fighting this disease.
I will be walking with my family on Mothers Day and am asking those of you who can to sponsor me. Every dollar counts whether its $5 or $10.
For those of you that do not want to use this site to donate you can send checks to my address - 524 Merchants Rd. Rochester, NY 14609. PLEASE make checks out to "Breast Cancer Coalition of Rochester".
Many thanks for your support!
