THE STORY:

We've heard the statistics often, and they no longer shock us.

• A woman's chance of having breast cancer at some point during her lifetime is about 1 in 8. As she gets older, that probability increases.

• One in 35 women will die from breast cancer.

We all know someone -- a family member, a high school friend, a co-worker -- who has been treated for the disease and appears to be thriving.

We all have heard of someone who died too young, yep that happened to my mom! She was the most amazing woman, and I miss her every day.  Though the hurt gets lessened each year that passes, I will never forget her love for our family.

We've heard about the millions of dollars raised and the promising research breakthroughs. And we wonder when all of that money and brainpower will turn breast cancer from a killer into a chronic disease.

The risks and chances of having breast cancer are well known, yet many of us continue to think, "That can't happen to me."

That's what I thought too.  The tests I endured were many and all pointed to my high risk to get breast cancer.  In the fall of 2011, I took it upon myself to have both breasts removed and total reconstruction to prevent breast cancer from taking my life.   

I have now dedicated my life to helping to raise money for research, support and to find a cure.  I speak on behalf of many who no longer have a voice and I believe a cure is near for this deadly disease.  Early detection and prevention are key.  Thank you for supporting my cause!
