I have participated in the Columbus Affiliate for the Susan G. Komen Walk for the Cure for the last few years. This year I was prepared to sit it out due to life events, when I received an email from a dead woman. I lost a former classmate to breast cancer a few years ago. We had recently reconnected on Facebook, and at no time did she tell me that she was fighting the good fight, so her death came as a shock and hit me hard. Besides her husband, she left behind a 15 year old daughter. Having lost my mom to a different kind of cancer when I was 13, I was heartbroken to think of this young girl having to go through the growing up years without her mom, and I reached out to her via email. I never heard back from her, until today, when out of the blue, I received an email from her mom's facebook account (yeah, that spooked me). She wanted to let me know that she had received my email from 3 years ago, but had never known how to respond. She kept her mom's facebook account active, as it gave her a kind of comfort to see that friends posted on it from time to time. She loved that I participated in the Walk for the Cure and that my husband got involved in my fundraising efforts by offering to have his toenails painted pink if I could get to $500.00 over my goal. She cheered and cried when she saw the photos of his pink toenails displayed on Facebook for the whole world to see. And then she asked if he would be making that same offer again this year. I sat there with tears in my eyes and realized that I had no good excuse for not participating this year, so here I am, asking for your generous support again.

You can donate online with your credit card by clicking the button above my fundraising thermometer.

Your support helps us get one step closer to a world without breast cancer. 75 percent of the money raised through the Race stays in the community to fund local breast cancer education, screening and treatment programs. The remaining 25 percent supports groundbreaking breast cancer research. 

Together, we are fueling the best science, boldest community and biggest impact in the fight against breast cancer. And we will not stop until this disease is gone forever. That’s our promise. Will you please join me in this fight by making a donation today? Thank you in advance, from the bottom of my heart.
