I am so excited to be running the Falmouth Road Race for the 15-40 team! I have been a survivor speaker for this wonderful organization for years. Their messaging has reached thousands of people, and has been used as a tool to detect cancer early.
15-40 Connection is focused on educating and empowering people about early cancer detection. This education helps individuals become aware of the early warning signs of cancer.
Research shows that detecting cancer early improves effectiveness of cancer treatment and also improves the chance of survival, which is why 15-40 Connection is empowering individuals to be aware of the early warning signs to give them their best chance at effective treatment and survival.
15-40 Connection aims to educate and empower individuals with the skills to recognize subtle health changes in themselves, rather than rely only on medical professionals.
Through 15-40 Connection’s 3 Steps Detect, individuals learn how to become active participants in their own health care so cancer as well as other illnesses can be diagnosed earlier. The result is a quicker return to health and most importantly lives saved.
So why is this important to me, personally? I have lost countless friends and family members to cancer, and every single person I know has been affected by cancer because I, myself, am a cancer survivor. I was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2009 and I am still living with the after math of chemo/countless surgeries. Volunteering with the 15-40 and being part of their community outreach has turned the negative experience of having cancer into a positive, empowering one.
Please take a minute to look at the 15-40 website! Thank you in advance for your support.
