When I was a senior in High School my mom started her battle with breast cancer. At first your mind goes blank, and then a million things run through your mind at once....
None of these things include thoughts of finances.
I am blessed to say my mom has been in remission for over 12 years 💗. And with the help of my doctor we have already started my early detection plan - including having my first mammogram at age 30, well before the recommended age- due to my high risk factors. 🎀
No donation is to small in the fight against breast cancer. Lets make a difference together! #fightlikeagirl
1 out of 8 women go on to get breast cancer. Men get breast cancer as well! (It is often genetic in men).The organization serves northern MN and northern WI based on funds in accounts. It covers other areas based on funds raised. Many patients have to quit work to receive life saving treatments. Patients have daily living expenses that need to be met. Some have insurance issues and unpaid co-pays. Circle of Hope also funds Stage IV breast cancer research locally through the University of Minnesota Duluth Medical School.
Circle of Hope's goal is to raise $20,000.00 with each runner raising a minimum of $400.00.
