THE STORY:

My family has had enough of Breast Cancer. My mother was first diagnosed when I was in high school. The idea of leaving my father alone with all 5 of us must have been terrifying( I was the second to oldest). Then breast cancer reappeared years later and my mom passed away at the age of 72. Then, my sister got breast cancer… luckily caught early and thank goodness she is ok. Not too long after my mother passed away, my brother's wife was diagnosed with breast cancer at the young age of 38. She wasn't so lucky and died 5 years later, leaving my brother with 3 children under the age of 12. I've seen what this awful disease can do.

We are lucky to have such a wonderful organization here in Rochester, New York that supports those dealing with this dreadful disease. I have been on their Board of Directors for the past 5 years and I have seen first hand what an amazing organization it is. All money raised stays in this community. There is no parent organization. The Breast Cancer Coalition of Rochester has helped hundreds of women (and men) who have been diagnosed with breast cancer. Their experience and knowledge has led them to create a space where you can come for support and education, to learn about issues impacting the breast cancer community, and if desired, to participate in events and advocacy.

Please consider a donation. My daughter, Paula will be coming home from Washington, DC that weekend to walk with me on Mother's Day. Your support means so much to me and the organization.
