Join us on Mother's Day at Genesee Valley Park for the 13th Annual Pink Ribbon Run & Walk. The race and walk routes provide scenic views of the Genesee River, Erie Canal and U of R Campus.
My team and I have decided to celebrate Mother's Day this year by raising money for this all so important foundation. I was diagnosed with StageII BC on 8/13/13. The scariest words any woman can hear. Does not matter the age. You are then faced with making a decision that will prayerfully be the right one to save your life. I chose a bylateral mastectomy, my thought was I am only going to fight this fight once and never again. It was an agonizing decision but was right for me. I am now 6 mos. cancer free. We need to keep awareness in the forefront. Early detection is the key.
I pray that no other feamale Ever has to experience what so many of us already have.
It seems as though with every passing week I am hearing of another breast cancer and the ages are getting younger and not older.
I am asking that you please support our team in hopes of saving more lives. Could be you, your mother, your daughter or anyone you dearly love.
Thank you for your support
