Welcome for visiting my personal Avon 39 Walk for Breast Cancer page!
We all know that there's strength in numbers, so it’s with great strength that I will work hard and walk toward putting an end to the suffering caused by breast cancer. We each have our reasons for participating - - whether it’s a personal fight with breast cancer, the struggle or loss of a loved one, or a deep commitment to the cause.
I make the big commitment each year. I spend months training to prepare for a walk of up to a marathon and a half. Each participant is required to raise at least $1,800 in donations. I know with your help, I can attain that goal. It is because of you , my loving team NEWBIES FOR BOOBIES BACK FOR MORE alone has raised in excess of $147,690.29 since 2010. Help make a greater impact for this year. WOOT WOOT!!!!!
I made a promise to myself 8 years ago to do whatever within my power to bring about breast cancer awareness to my community and to those I love as a means to minimize what has come to be a major health epidemic for both women and men. I lost my beloved Aunt Easter over 8 years ago to this horrible disease. Nothing I do will ever bring her back, but it is with her strength and courage I carry, enabling me to continue pounding the pavement each year to raise money. These donations are immediately distributed to create the avenues for the financially underserved to partake in various educational programs, to fund breast cancer screenings, treatement, and to actively support breast cancer research.
I will be walking again in the Avon 39 Walk for Breast Cancer (NYC). I'll be just one of thousands of people who will walk up to 39.3 miles over two days and I am required to raise $1,800 to partake in the event. I, as always plan to raise much more. For those who have stood by me in supporting my fundraising efforts in the past and for those who continue to do so, know I am forever grateful for the love you have shown me and to the lives we are potentially saving.
This year I walk for a new warrior, Laurel ( my big sis) who was diagnosed this spring with early stage breast cancer. She is lucky, as she is a two- time survivor as she previously battled thyroid cancer. Im proud to say she recently finished with her treatments and is slowly getting back to her busy life as a loving mom and doting wife. I also walk in honor of my first cousin, Missy , childhood friend Jenna, my niece's god mother Jeanette , friend Shai's mom, Chanda's mom ( Vera), and my dear friend's Olivia's mom who fought with every ounce of her being but just lost her battle Sept. 30,2017, my two-time warrior Newbie sister Kristin, and in memory of my Aunt Easter, childhood friend Dayla, and Evelyn.
