I am participating in AVON 39 The Walk to End Breast Cancer. It is a total of 39 miles over two days. It won’t be easy, but compared to the alternative it is a small price to pay. From now until AVON 39 weekend, which is September 9 & 10, I’ll train to strengthen my body to walk the 39 miles. I’ll also be raising funds to help crush breast cancer and support those who have already been diagnosed.
Why am I doing this you might ask? It is simple, Cancer has become personal. My father died of brain cancer, I have many women friends who have suffered and survived Breast Cancer, and finally, I recently went through my own cancer treatments and on August 2, 2017, I received my 18 month review of cancer free.
Until you have been told the “C” word, you do not know the fear, uncertainty and doubt that takes over all your thoughts. I decided it is time to “Walk - The Walk to End Breast Cancer.” This is where you come in. We need your contributions. My initial goal was to raise $100 for each mile walked or $3,900. I have hit that goal - raising almost $7,000 ans raised dhe bar. New TARGET is $200 per mile or $7,860?
I hope that I can count on your support! Thank you to all of those who have donated so far. Here is the link to my web page;

I’m walking with thousands of other 39ers. We’re banding together in solidarity and have one goal: to take breast cancer down. So many sisters and mothers and friends have been lost. We see a world without breast cancer for our daughters and nieces. AVON 39 is a force of change that can’t be stopped. By supporting me with a donation, you are part of it.
