BENEFITING: OVARIAN CANCER COALITION OF GREATER CALIFORNIA
EVENT: 2016 Women Cancer Run
EVENT DATE: Oct 29, 2016
I know you woke up this morning thinking, "How can I make the world a better place?" Or maybe you woke up wondering, "If Trump is elected, how will I survive in Canada without a Trader Joes and Hot Cheetos?" Well I wish I could help you with the over-the-border snack dilemma, but happily there is something you can do to make the world a better place right now.
Please join me and thousands of local supporters as we come together to fight against ovarian and breast cancer with the 2016 Women's Cancer Run. I will be running the 10K and raising funds that will go to support the Ovarian Cancer Coalition of Greater California and the Valley Breast Care Foundation in an effort to bring awareness and funds towards women's health issues in Southern California.
As a breast cancer survivor, I am especially excited about the work being done by the Valley Breast Cancer Foundation which focuses on providing timely access to breast cancer screening, diagnosis, and treatment for under-insured and uninsured women. I was incredibly fortunate to have access to top-notch doctors, an amazing support system of family and friends, and good health insurance. My medical bills in one year totalled over $200,000 before insurance kicked in. No woman should have to add 'finances' to her list of things to worry about after a breast cancer diagnosis.
Your support will make a big difference. Any amount helps - really!
Thank you in advance for donating to this worthy cause.
