Medical Science: Breast Cancer

(This one is short on notice, but I know we can do it.  Sharon’s current goal is only $1000.  As we did for Emily in her quest, let’s exceed the $1000 goal in honor of her mother and all of those we know who suffer from cancer.)

Please visit the Race for a Cure Donation Page.

As some of you may know, a few weeks ago a woman I often referred to as “mom” passed away after fighting cancer for many years.  So many times she surpassed expectations in her battle, living long enough to see her children grow to become successful adults and to enjoy the early years of her grandson.  Now it is our turn fight the good fight as she did by contributing to the education and research of breast cancer. 

Breast cancer is the most common and the second most deadly form of cancer in women worldwide.  Catchingthe disease early increases the odds of surviving increases greatly.  Educating the public so they are aware of the early warning signs of breast cancer is just as important as finding a cure.  The Race for a Cure provides funding for both. 

The leading team (as of April 7th) currently has collected $9190 in donations.  Sharon has a goal of only $1000.  Let’s do what we can to blow past the leader and show our support for all of our friends and loved ones who are currently suffering from this disease or have fallen victim to it.  As medical science has shown, we are able to suppress or even defeat diseases when we put all of our effort into it.  Breast cancer is no different. 

Thank you in advance for your support in this short notice call for help.  Sharon, her family, and I are truly in your debt.
