As some of you know my dear friend Liala's mom has battle with breast cancer for many years and has just got the diagnosis that it has returned for the fourth time. In support of her battle I have decided to join Liala and her mom Martha in the fight to end breast cancer by participating in the Susan G. Komen Global Race for the Cure®.
Tens of thousands of people will gather on the National Mall on June 5 to take a stand and prove that individuals have the power to change the world.
Without the cures, an estimated 25 million women around the world will be diagnosed with breast cancer and 10 million could die over the next 25 years. That's why I'm joining the fight. I hope that you'll support me.
I've set my personal goal at $125. So I need your help. You can give online at GlobalRacefortheCure.org.
Up to 75 percent of the Komen Global Race's net income stays in the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area to fund local screening, treatment and education programs for the medically underserved. The remaining dollars support the Susan G. Komen for the Cure Global Promise Fund, a program which is dedicated to reaching underserved people in areas where breast cancer mortality rates are the highest.
Every dollar makes a difference:
$100 could be used to provide one mammogram
$250 could be used to cover five clinical breast exams
$500 could be used to provide five diagnostic ultrasounds
$1000 could be used to provide 10 mammograms
Thank you in advance for your generosity!
P.S. Ask your employer if they will double your donation through a matching gift program!
