These Boobs Were Made For Walkin' - Wk 1

I was 15 when I lost my grandmother to breast cancer. She was too young to die, and I was too young to lose one of the most special people in my life. In October, I'll have the privilege of walking 60 miles to raise money to help fight this unforgiving disease.

My personal fund raising goal for the Washington, DC 3-day walk is $2,300.
Each Monday, I'll report on my fundraising efforts and discuss a few facts about breast cancer. If you'd like to support me by making a small donation, there's a button below which will take you directly to my fundraising page.

Help me reach my goal for the Washington, DC Breast Cancer 3-Day!

Any amount will be helpful and greatly appreciated. If you would like to make a donation on behalf of someone special in your life, please include their name in the comments.

More than 200,000 women in the United States will be diagnosed with breast cancer this year, and almost 40,000 will lose their fight. I feel it is my responsibility to do something to make that number less!

Good for you! My first Breast Cancer 3-day was last year in Seattle, and it was a wonderful experience. I wish you well with your training and fundraising. It may seem overwhelming, but you can do it!

How wonderful that you are doing that in memory of your sweet grandmother. My grandmother had breast cancer. It was so long ago that it's only a vague memory to me. My mother in law also had breast cancer. Thankfully, they are both survivors, but my MIL especially is very active in supporting finding a cure for breast cancer.

I hope you have a wonderful time on your 3 day! Thanks for the education too...we all need to know the facts.
