Welcome, and thank you for visiting our AVON 39 Team Kreiner page!
Following a year focused on improved health and well being, we were quite shocked when Marci received a diagnosis of breast cancer this past May. There was no family history and no obvious warning signs...just the good fortune of a well-timed preventative screening test. Aside from the angst of having received the initial diagnosis, we were extremely fortunate every subsequent step of the way to have access to good health insurance, top doctors and treatment, tremendous support from family and friends, and a cancer that had not yet spread. For all of these things, we are so grateful.
Yet, we know that there are countless other mothers, sisters, daughters and friends who are yet to be diagnosed and who may not be so lucky. It is in their honor that we have decided to participate in this year's walk.
We've each made a big commitment. We’ll spend the next few months training to prepare for a walk of up to a marathon and a half this coming June. Each of us is required to raise at least $1,800 in donations. But because we're in this together, we know that, with your help, we can do it.
Please support our team through a donation of any size through our team page. If you'd prefer to write a check, just contact one of us and we'll send you the form and information.
We are so grateful for your support!
With love, Marci & Howard
