Please help me raise awareness and support for those affected by breast cancer!!! I will be participating in the 39.3 mile AVON BREAST CANCER walk on SEPT 22 & SEPT 23!! Please donate and help me reach my $1800 goal!! Because not every woman can afford a mammogram or medical treatment, and more research needs to be done, WE WALK!!!
Here is where EVERY cent goes to:
Thanks to millions of Avon Walk participants, more than $740 million has been raised and donated to breast cancer programs around the world since 2003, supporting research to find a cure or prevention, as well as programs that enable all patients to access quality care. Support for the medically underserved is a key priority — including low-income, elderly and minority individuals, and those who are under-insured.
Breast Cancer Facts:
*A woman has a 1 in 8 chance of developing breast cancer in her lifetime.
