Starting this Friday, J and I will walk 60 miles over the course of three days with thousands of other women and men as part of the Breast Cancer 3 Day. The net proceeds will support breast cancer research, education, screening and treatment through 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, and we each plan on raising $2200 to help bring us closer to that goal.
Without a cure, one in eight women in the U.S. will continue to be diagnosed with breast cancer. According to Susan G. Komen for the Cure, more than 200,000 American women will be diagnosed with breast cancer this year, and nearly 40,000 will die from the disease.
Support us in raising awareness and funding of breast cancer research... any support is appreciated & no donation is too small! To make a donation, go to my donation page: http://08.the3day.org/goto/nicolemccabe
