In April 2017 we will walk 39 miles to give others a fighting chance to beast breast cancer. We will also be raising funds on behalf of the Avon Breast Cancer Crusade. The dollars donated will put food on the table of a breast cancer patient, enable access to mammograms and medicine, fuel research, and save lives!
Other people got cancer until 2012......
Kay Miller faithfully had a routine mammogram every year. For 24 years those mammograms were uneventful, until one of them wasn't. CANCER, infiltrating ductal carcinoma, which had spread beyond its original location and into the surrounding tissue. Luckily Kay's cancer was stage one, her belief in the importance of preventative care gave her an incredible advantage in her fight against breast cancer. Kay chose to have a mastectomy followed by five to ten years of oral cancer medications. Kay is and will win her fight against cancer!
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. Each team member 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. You can make a donation to any team member by clicking on their name, and you’ll be taken to their personal page. If you'd prefer to write a check, just contact one of us and we'll send you the form and information.
Thank you for helping us reach our fundraising goal! Every dollar helps in the fight against cancer!
