for ten years now i have led a team, the Bettys, in the American Cancer Society's Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk. the team name is in memory of my Mom who lost the battle with cancer. i am always looking for ways to increase awareness and raise money for the fight against breast cancer. There are still so many women out there who do not get mammograms and that's just not OK. so while raising money is critical, it's no more critical than education woman on the importance of breast exams - both self exams and mammorgrams. Additionally, the ACS was so supportive to my Mom and my family during her treatments and their programs are so vital to the success of those fighting cancer and their loved ones, I can't help but find any avenue I can to get the word out and raise money to support research and the amazing programs ACS offers such as Road to Recovery and Look Good Feel Good. Please call 1-800-CANCER for more information.
