BENEFITING: Breast Cancer Fund

Elizabeth George

THE STORY:

We are a group of eight ladies who love to run and get other women up and moving! And we're doing it in the name of a great cause - the Breast Cancer Fund.

In 2007, an estimated 237,000 American women were diagnosed with breast cancer and 40,500 died of the disease. In the U.S., a woman's lifetime risk of breast cancer is greater than 1 in 8. Breast cancer accounts for 1 of every 4 cancer diagnoses in women. It is the leading cause of cancer death among women between their 30s and 50s in the U.S.

No more than 1 in 10 women who have breast cancer have a genetic history of the disease. Even when all traditional risk factors--including genetic predisposition, reproductive history, diet, exercise and alcohol--are combined, more than half of U.S. breast cancer cases remain unexplained.

And that is why prevention is so important! The Breast Cancer Fund does just that! It is the leading national organization focused on identifying the environmental causes of breast cancer and preventing the disease by educating women, changing policy and spreading the word.

So please donate today and help us reach our goal of raising over $1,000 to help the Breast Cancer Fund's mission!
