I am celebrating almost 18 years of being a breast cancer survivor. In that time I have seen many friends and family going through the difficult and emotional times of surgery, chemotherapy and radiation. New therapies and treatment plans are due to the generous support of everyone who donates to the American Cancer Society. Research is a key to success and here in Minnesota we are lucky to have research facilities at the Mayo Clinic and the University of Minnesota. Please help me raise dollars to help in this fight against cancer. No amount is too small. If you would like to honor a survivor or remember someone who lost their battle with cancer consider donating $10 for a luminaria bag. Let me know their name and I will be happy to place in at our relay event on Friday, August 2. Thank You.
