I am competing in “Girls Gone Rx” with two amazing women as teammates! This is one their stories.
As many of you know, our mother died from breast cancer in 1973. After finding the lump, 6 months later she was gone, leaving 3 kids under the age of 5. Recently her best friend told me that shortly after her diagnosis she gave a talk at the local women’s college encouraging everyone to do monthly breast checks. As she was dying of cancer, she was helping others. On September 22nd , Crystal Johnson-Gripp , Maya Willis-Tindall and I are going to work our butts off and raise money for Bright Pink a breast and ovarian health organization. Please consider helping us reach our goal!
