This Mother’s Day, I will be participating in the 2006 Komen Pittsburgh Race for the Cure® to raise pledges in support of the fight against breast cancer. Since my aunt is currently receiving treatment for breast cancer, this a disease I am particularly motivated to eradicate.
Breast cancer is the second leading cause of cancer deaths in women today and the most common cancer among women. It is estimated that more than 1.2 million people will be diagnosed with breast cancer this year worldwide. Early detection is your best defense against this disease. When found early, your chance of survival is greatly increased. Your participation in the pledge program will save lives by providing mammograms to the underinsured and uninsured women and men in 30 counties throughout Central and Western Pennsylvania.
By pledging your support of my participation in the Race, you will help provide the necessary funds for vital breast cancer education, screening and treatment programs in our community. Please join me in the fight by pledging your tax-deductible contribution. Simply click the link below to make your online donation. You may also download a pledge/donation form from the website if you prefer to mail in your contribution. Whatever you can give will help! I truly appreciate your support and will keep you posted on my progress. Thank you so much for your time and support in the fight against breast cancer! Every step counts!
