BENEFITING: National Breast Cancer Coalition Fund
EVENT DATE: Oct 08, 2010
Im a father of three wonderful daughters and two mischievous Boerboels. Im a techie and a motorcycle enthusiast. I love life and spending every moment available with family and friends. I am raising money to help fight and cure this terrible disease that affects so many every year. This disease has touched many people in my life and some of these people still fight where some have passed on. I have decided to color my hair pink for the remainder of October 2010 to show my support. Ill be visiting businesses and hospitals spreading awareness over these next few weeks. Stay tuned for pics and posting and thanks for reading a little bit about me.
WHY YOU SHOULD VOTE FOR ME:
About 1 in 8 women in the United States (between 12 and 13%) will develop invasive breast cancer over the course of her lifetime. In 2010, an estimated 207,090 new cases of invasive breast cancer are expected to be diagnosed in women in the U.S., along with 54,010 new cases of non-invasive (in situ) breast cancer. For all of you men out there that think this is a disease the only affects women, about 1,970 new cases of invasive breast cancer will be diagnosed in men in 2010. These numbers are staggering and I am determined to reach my goal of $10,000.00 by October 31, 2010. Please donate whatever you can
