Many of us don't realize that October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
We encourage all women as young as 40 to make an appointment for their first mammogram. As an avid supporter and adovcate for this cause in October, I will walk 60 Miles over 3 days to raise funds and awareness.
Funds raised do support Research and Development but they also enable local communities to provide serivces to women that truly need them. A portion of donated funds go to providing mammograms, wigs, aftercare, support and transportation to receive these services. Families that are touched by breast cancer feel the long lasting impact long after the walk is over. But the support for these women and their families is ongoing.
I have a personal goal to raise $4,000 and need your help to get there. If each person here knows someone or themselves have been touched by breast cancer, lend your support to us and the effort to raise awareness.
Early detection is a vital part of treatment, do your self breast exams monthly, schedule a yearly mammogram support those that fighting to beat breast cancer.
If you would like to make a donation that is tax deductible of any amount, it would be greatly appreciated. You may make your donations to my page @ www.the3day.org/goto/nichelle
I Am My Sister's Keeper
We need to let our voices be heard, today, tomorrow and everyday until there is a cure.
A little goes a long way. $35 provides transportation to receive treatment or a mammogram. Please do what you can for yourself or someone you know, love or lost. Request their name be placed on a ribbon to be worn to acknowledge them during this
