Boise Komen Race For The Cure 2017
One Way Or Another...Help!
Someone You Know Will Be The..
Next Breast Cancer Survivor
Breast cancer is not the only disease taking friends and family away from us! But it is one we are getting close to curing! Early detection is the key. Survival rates are getting really good when detected early. Please Help...the individuals and community is depending on us. We have all been touched by cancer in one way or another. Donate if you can, every little bit helps!
Why is this important? Breast cancer is the second most common cause of cancer mortality among women in developed countries (lung cancer is first). I am fundraising this year to help provide a screening mammogram to an uninsured or under insured individuals in need. Women who live in developed countries tend to have a higher lifetime risk, we don’t know all the reasons but lifestyle and reproductive factors likely play a large role. If you can not donate, come and join my team. Do something, share the Facebook post if nothing else.
Save The Date
Get out of the house and walk for the Race this year or support someone fighting cancer. It does make a difference!
The 2017 Susan G. Komen Boise Race for the Cure®
Race Day - Saturday, May 13, 2017 | Race begins at 9am
Why do I continue to volunteer? I have volunteered for the last 7 years in the Survivor tent. What is really special is how much it means to the individuals that are battling Cancer. They are in all stages of therapy and mental distress. Being part of something bigger than me helps to release the burdens of the disease and seeing all the support, warms my heart. I was talking to a cancer survivor last year that had cancer 20 years ago. She had gotten the all clear but it came back. She said that the support that is out there today due to the Race For The Cure, has change minds and attitudes about cancer and people who are fighting it. She really could not explain the fear and guilt that was lifted with all the support these days.
