save the ta-tas

i have taken on an incredible challenge. on oct. 31, 2008, i’ll be walking 60 miles over the course of three days and camping out at night.

it’s for an event called the breast Cancer 3-day, which benefits susan g. komen for the cure and the national philanthropic trust breast Cancer fund. every advancement in breast Cancer research, treatment, education and prevention in the last 25 years has been touched by a komen for the cure grant. they are working hard to build a future without breast Cancer.

without a cure, one in eight women in the u.s. will continue to be diagnosed with breast Cancer.

i’ve committed to walking the breast Cancer 3-day to support an amazing friend of mine named shelley. i watched her lose her mother to a very long painful battle with breast Cancer only to turn around a few years later and be diagnosed herself. she had just gotten married and had hopes to start a family soon after. now it seems, so many of her dreams are on hold. she’s been through round after round of treatment and recently received the good news that she is in remission. but she was in her twenties when she was diagnosed and recurrance is an all too likely possibility. i want to do everything i can to keep that from happening and if walking 60 miles helps in even a small way then it’s a challenge i’m willing to take.

i’d truly appreciate your support. any donation, no matter how small, will help. just follow the link below to visit my fundraising page. if you don’t want to donate online, you can download and print a donation form (available on my page).

thank you for your support. together we can help find a cure!
