BENEFITING: BREAST CANCER FAMILY FOUNDATION INC
EVENT DATE: Oct 04, 2014
This year's Pink Pumpkin has even more meaning behind it than the other years that I have participated. It will be 19 years to the date that breast cancer took my Mom's life. She fought a long and hard battle in order to be with us as long as she could. Though I was pretty young when she was sick, it still seems like yesterday I was holding her hand and walking next to her. She was the best!
As a daughter, a sister and a mother I realize how important I am to everybody's life as they are to mine. I am pro-active when it comes to the detection of the possibility of breast cancer since it happened to my mom. I'm hoping to raise $500 to bring awareness to families in our area so the reality of cancer is not ignored but rather an obstacle that can be avoided. A couple years ago I created a donation page and I was at the top of the list. It's only a week away and I'm looking forward to it. If you would like to join our family in the walk/run let me know, it's always a great time and keeps on growing every year. Please donate to the Breast Cancer Family Foundation in hopes of saving a daughter, sister or mother in your life with education early on. :)
Education is the way forward. Did you know that obesity is now the number one risk factor for cancer? The Breast Cancer Family Foundation is committed to reducing this risk by educating over 8,500 students and adults in our community each year on awareness and prevention for all types of cancer. This Walk/Run helps us continue our mission in a very big way. For more information: www.PinkPumpkinWalk.com
