One in 8 women will face breast cancer in this country. With those odds, that could be my mother, sister, friend, or me. Women today are leaders, supporters, providers, caretakers, partners, wives, mothers, and sometimes all of these things at once. Cancer tears down the carefully crafted scaffold that holds lives together. BCRC is what puts the scaffold back together. It provides the vital support that clinicians, friends, and sometimes even loved ones cannot, because we don't know what it's like to have a cancer diagnosis. Members of BCRC do, and their support allows women to carry on and live their life in spite of cancer. Please help me raise as much money as possible so the support can continue. If you would like to donate in honor or memory of someone close to you, let me know. I will find a way to take them with me on my paddle. Thank you very much.
