THE STORY:

Thank you for visiting my fundraising page!

On March 17th, I will be running the NYC Half-Marathon with a charity team to raise money for a cause that is very close to my heart.  “Think Pink Rocks” is a non-profit organization whose mission is to raise awareness about early detection of and genetic testing for breast cancer and to provide funding for screening, treatment and research.  I am proud to be running my first half-marathon in memory of my mother, who lost her battle with breast cancer for the last time on March 3rd, 1999 -- 14 years ago this week.  She was an amazing woman who fought long and hard, but wasn’t one of the lucky ones who beat it.  My sister and I lost our mother to cancer, the same way she lost her mother.  Too many of us have been touched by some form of this disease and I can only hope that the day comes when luck is no longer what decides our fate.

Did you know:

A woman's risk of developing breast and ovarian cancer is greatly increased if she carries the BRCA1 or BRCA2 mutation (Breast Cancer gene mutation).

Women with a BRCA mutation have:

  • Up to 50% risk of developing breast cancer by age 50
  • Up to an 80% risk of developing breast cancer by age 70
  • Up to a 64% risk of developing a second breast cancer
  • Up to a to a 44% chance of developing ovarian cancer by age 70
  • BRCA mutations also increase the risk for other cancers in both men and women, including up to an 8% risk for male breast cancer and up to a 7% risk for pancreatic cancer in men and women

All monies raised for the NYC Half by members of Team Think Pink Rocks after costs are donated to Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, into the dedicated Think Pink Rocks breast cancer research fund, which is overseen by Dr. Mark Robson.  http://www.mskcc.org/cancer-care/doctor/mark-robson

Last year  (for NYC Half 2012) $60,000 was donated to Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center by Think Pink Rocks.

Think Pink Rocks is a 501 (c) (3) organization. Contributions to Think Pink Rocks are tax deductable to the extent allowable by law.
