Welcome, and thank you for visiting our AVON 39 Nilou's Warriors team page!
On May 6/7 2107 we will walk the AVON 39 The Walk to End Breast Cancer. Nilou’s Warriors will walk 39 miles together in just 2 days in solidarity with a single goal: to take breast cancer down.
We formed this team as a way to support a very dear friend of ours who was recently diagnosed with breast cancer. She has undergone a double mastectomy and is now healing. Next step in her fight she will begin chemotherapy. She has an army of friends and family to support her. But we are saddened that she must endure this.
Cancer is a terrible disease that has touched each of our lives somehow… relative, friend, coworker. My Great Aunt Elsa and my Aunt Cathy both battled breast cancer. This year there will be 246,660 new cases diagnosed in women and 40,000 women will die from breast cancer. It is unacceptable and we are determined to stop this disease. While we are developing new medications and treatments… we are not moving quickly enough.
Please make a donation and join Nilou’s Warriors in our fight. Use the link below to donate, or if you would prefer to write a check, you can make it payable to the "AVON 39 The Walk to End Breast Cancer" and send it to me directly.
