THE STORY:

Hi Everyone!

On Saturday, May 3, 2014 I'll be participating in the 3rd annual Standup For The Cure event in Newport Beach, CA. This event helps to raise awareness of breast cancer and funds in support of the OC Affiliate of Susan G Komen for the Cure. Every $125 we raise may save a life by enabling a mammogram!

As many of you know, I'm a 2-year breast cancer survivor thanks to early detection by mammogram and an avid standup paddler.

Please be a part of this exciting event on May 3rd, 2014 to "Have Fun and Save Lives"! Thanks for your support!

Location: Newport Dunes, Newport Beach California

DONATION: $20

On August 19, 2011 I was diagnosed with early stage DCIS thanks to early detection via mammogram. After my surgeries in October and March 2012 I began the long road to recovery. Paddle Boarding played a major role in my recovery. Once I was strong enough I got on the water as often as possible, at least three times a week. I paddle now because I can. Because I am so grateful to the doctors, nurses, friends and family members who helped me get through that awful time. And I paddle to honor loved ones who lost their battle to cancer and hopefully show those facing treatment that they can enjoy this wonderful sport that has given me so much. 4 years ago
