My name is Caitlyn, I am 19 and this June I will be taking on my first ever Avon walk to end breast cancer! It won’t be easy, but that’s why it's worth it. From now until June 23rd 2018, I will be training to walk over 39 miles in just two days. I am so excited to be raising money for such an amazing cause and walking to support so many incredible people.
Breast cancer has affected so many people in my family and this June I will be walking for my mom who battled with breast cancer for 15 long years. My mom Elizabeth was diagnosed with breast cancer in 1998 when I was just three months old, and is the most amazing women that I have ever known. She was the best mom in the world with the kindest heart, and she would do anything for anyone even while she was fighting for her life. She fought long and hard, but unfortunately lost her battle with stage four breast cancer in May 2013. I think about her every day and I am raising money so that one day we can end breast cancer so that no other child will have to go through the loss that I did at such a young age.
I need to raise at least $1,800, however I have made it my personal goal to raise more than $2,000! This is where you come in, I need your help in order to reach my goal and to help to support the millions of families effected by breast cancer. I hope that I can count on you to donate to such a worthy cause and to help in the fight to end breast cancer!
You can make a donation right here on my webpage by clicking the "Donate Now" button to the right. If you prefer to write a check, click the “Donate by Mail” button and follow the instructions on the form. The money that you donate will do so many wonderful things! It will put food on the table of a breast cancer patient and her family, enable access to mammograms and medicine, fuel research, and save lives.
I’m walking with thousands of other Avon 39ers. We are all walking with one goal in mind: to end breast cancer once and for all. So many mothers, sisters, aunts, grandmothers, best friends, and daughters have been lost. We want a world without breast cancer and AVON 39 is a force of change that can’t be stopped. By supporting me with a donation, you are part of this amazing fight. Thank you so much for helping in the fight to end breast cancer!
Thank you, Caitlyn
