BENEFITING: CLAUDIA MAYER BREAST CANCER FOUNDATION
EVENT DATE: Aug 21, 2011
Cancer. Close your eyes for second. Who did you picture? A friend? A family member? Did the thought conjur up pain? Each of us have been touched by this horrible disease -- whether as a survivor or someone who knows another who has had it. Personally, I've lost my mom to breast cancer and walked along side my sister who is still in the battle to finally be rid of it... not to mention my six cousins who have also faced breast cancer and my brother who has also suffered from this ravaging disease. Most recently, we've seen the affects that cancer has had on our two new little girls who lost their mommy to lung cancer at just 42 years old.
This year, I've joined a Team that walks beside those who are fighting cancer. Team Conquer is the team formed to benefit The Claudia Mayer Cancer Resource Center. "The Claudia Mayer Cancer Resource Center is Howard County's remarkable place of hope, help and support for men, women and children living and coping with cancer. Founded in 1998, its knowledgeable volunteers and nurturing staff provide support and assistance for cancer patients and their families and caregivers. The center has a resource library, a beauty salon, hair and skin products, wigs and prosthesis. It also offers various cancer support groups throughout the year."
Our flagship event for the year is the Columbia Iron Girl Triathlon (http://www.tricolumbia.org/events/?eid=6) on August 21. I will be participating for the first time (pray for me!). My goal is to raise $750. Every little bit helps. I could really use your help to raise money for the CMCRC. You can really make a difference -- even with just $5.
Thank you so much!
