Leighla Bowers' Fundraiser:

Too Many Women / Breakthrough Breast Cancer Research

In 2008, my best friend Melissa was diagnosed with breast cancer at just 25 years old. Although most of us cannot even imagine what it must be like to be in her shoes, she was so incredibly strong -- and I admire her so much for her strength during that time.

Thankfully she had access to some of the best medical doctors and treatment options, which helped her to fight the disease. After over a year of chemotherapy, daily medications, and 3 surgeries, she has been officially in remission since January 2010.

So when Melissa came to me and asked if I would help her to raise money for the largest UK-based breast cancer charity called Breakthrough Breast Cancer, it was a no-brainer. As a part of the "Too Many Women" breast cancer campaign (, Melissa is one of 201 Ambassadors, each working together with 9 of their friends, to raise GPB 500 per person for Breakthrough Breast Cancer. Keep in mind that 1 in 9 women will suffer from breast cancer.

Our big goal is GBP 1,000,000 by the end of the year, and my personal goal is 500 Euros.

Thank you all for taking the time to come to my fund-raising page, and most of all for donating any amount you wish -- no matter how small, every penny (or Euro cent) is most appreciated!

Thanks for helping Melissa and Too Many Women!
