Our family comes from a long line of strong women. As many families in the U.S. our family has also lost loved ones to cancer. Most recently our cousin Carmen was diagnosed in March of 2019 with Phase II breast cancer. Since then she has had two surgeries and is currently undergoing chemo for the 2nd time. Carmen is as many of the women in our family strong, beautiful and faithful. She also has ready smile for those she loves and a wonderfully positive outlook on life. With the help of her parents, partner and children she fights this horrible disease with everything she has. As support for our cousin and all the women we love who have been afflicted with cancer, we started this campaign to help the war against cancer.
Breast cancer can make anyone feel alone. While mortality rates have dropped 39% among women since 1989, this year about 266,120 American women are expected to be diagnosed with breast cancer, and 40,920 women are expected to die from the disease. But, together, we are stronger than breast cancer.
