LET'S GET DIRTY
April 26, 2016
In 2004, my mom was diagnosed with breast cancer. Thankfully it was detected early, and she did not need major surgery to have the cancer removed. She continued going for yearly mammograms, and in 2013 a small cluster of cancerous cells were detected again. She underwent a double mastectomy, and has been cancer-free since.
My mom was very lucky that her cancer was caught so early both times, but not all women have the ability to have yearly screenings for breast and ovarian cancers. The money I fundraise will educate women on how to be proactive in reducing their risk for cancer, and allow them to access screenings to detect cancer before it reaches a life-threatening stage. Even the smallest donation will help! Thank you for any money you're willing to give to this very important cause!
