Making a Difference


"Together, we CAN make a difference"!!  That sounds so cliche'ish, but it IS true...  When you look at a big picture, working together you can magnify your effort exponentially.  That is just what the Susan G. Komen Race For the Cure is all about; people from all walks of life, coming together for one purpose!  FIGHT AGAINST BREAST CANCER and RAISE AWARENESS.

You can find more information on the History and details for The Susan G. Komen Foundation here

I have lost two aunts to cancer, so it is an important topic for me and a cause that I get behind and support!  I participated in The Race for the Cure last year and was deeply touched by the dedication so many people have toward this cause.  I walked side by side with survivors who are battling or have battled this deadly disease.  You can't help but feel swept away with emotion for these women and families of survivors or families who had lost loved ones.
So, I am participating again this year!  I will be Racing for the Cure on April 9th in Ft. Worth, Texas.  I will proudly stand beside others who feel strongly about this cause and KNOW that I AM making a difference in the life of so many women and maybe even someone in my family!  Together, WE WILL FIND A CURE!
I would be honored if you would choose to support me while I Race for the Cure.  You can visit my page here: My Donation Page  and make a donation that will go directly to the Susan G. Komen Foundation!  My goal is $100... I'm hoping to EXCEED this goal!
