Ruth Ann Blaauw and Carol Beimers wrote -Our lives became intertwined 7 years ago when Ruth's son married Carol's daughter. Our bond was solidified and made stronger after we were both diagnosed with breast cancer, just 1 1/2 years apart. Ruth had ductal carcinoma cancer, with 3 surgeries, followed by radiation therapy. Carol was diagnosed with invasive ductal breast cancer, had 2 surgeries plus radiation treatment. Ruth, 3 years post diagnosis & Carol, 1 1/2 years post diagnosis, are cancer survivors and invite you to join them at the Bee Brave 5k on Oct. 7. Help us support Breast Cancer research to defeat this disease. If you would sign up to walk with us or make a donation, we would appreciate it!
