My sister Lorie and I are looking forward to being a small part of this special event. This cause is very close to our hearts and we ask you to please join us to find a cure for breast cancer. Valerie was diagnosed with triple negative breast cancer in February, 2003 at the age of 46.
We participate because 1 out of 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer and Valerie is one of those women. Approximately 40,000 people die every year from this disease.
We participate in this special event in memory of our Aunt Virginia, Joan, Brenda and Debbie. We participate in honor of Eric Russell's godfather, Doug, who is fighting this disease, in honor of Lorie's co-worker, Virginia Paley (Jinni) who is going through treatment right now and beautiful Stephanie Marty (diagnosed February 13, 2017), who we have become very close friends with. We also participate for all of our friends and family facing special challenges in their life and are unable to walk or run. (our sister Susie)
In February Valerie will be 15 years cancer free and we are honored to raise funds for this great organization. Thank you for your support.
