Thank you for visiting my fundraising page. I have committed to raising much-needed funds to support the Avon Breast Cancer Crusade. We all have our own reasons for supporting the fight against breast cancer, but in case you need some extra motivation, here are some heartbreaking statistics that I’m hoping to help change:
- A woman has a 1 in 8 chance of developing breast cancer in her lifetime.
- Every 3 minutes, there is a new diagnosis of invasive breast cancer.
- Approximately 230,480 women and 2,140 men will be diagnosed with breast cancer this year.
- Every 13 minutes, a life is lost to breast cancer.
- 39,520 women and 450 men in the U.S. will die from the disease annually.
You can help right now: Click the pink "Donate Now" button on this page. If you prefer to write a check, please contact me, and I'll send you the information and form.
The money I raise will be managed and disbursed by the Avon Foundation Breast Cancer Crusade to help provide access to care for those who most need it, fund educational programs, and accelerate research into new treatments and potential cures. Your donation will help people who are fighting this disease right now as well as helping us reach the ultimate goal of a world without breast cancer.
Thank you in advance for your support.
