What am I doing?
My very first Race for the Cure was in 1998, when I was a one-year survivor. It's hard to believe that the Race for the Cure has been such a special part of my life for 19 years. The sea of pink survivor t-shirts and the encouragement along the way make it an incredibly special event for survivors and their families. Joe and I both want to make a difference in the fight against breast cancer! Please help me reach my fundraising goal by making a tax-deductible donation today.

Your breast health?
The greatest risk factors for breast cancer are being female and growing older. Breast cancer knows no boundary, be it age, gender, socio-economic status or geographic location. One in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime. That is one in eight within your neighorhood, church, exercise group, work team and organization!
The key to survival is early detection. Three simple steps for early detection are regular mammograms, clinical exams and breast self-exams. And, remember, breast cancer affects more than just the patient; friends and family need support too.
What does Komen do?
For more than 25 years, Susan G. Komen for the Cure has played a critical role in every major advance in the fight against breast cancer; transforming how the world talks about and treats this disease, and helping to turn millions of breast cancer patients into breast cancer survivors.
Over the next 25 years, an estimated 25 million women around the world will be diagnosed with breast cancer if we don't find a cure. Komen will not stop until we discover and deliver the cures. That's their promise.
We Will Find the Cure with Your Help!
