What am I doing?
I'm walking to support the Inland Empire Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure because I want to make a difference in the fight against breast cancer. Please help me reach my fundraising goal by making a tax-deductible donation today. I was diagnosed with breast cancer, did the surgery, finished the chemo 5/14/2010. I met several have met wonderful women that were going thru the same battle. Some of these women had been diagnosed a second time with breast cancer or cancer that had shown up in other parts of their bodies. I am one of those women. In April 2014 I was diagnosed with breast hormonal cancer that has matastised to my liver and bone. I am on chemo tablets for the rest of my life. The good news is the doctor said she has had patients that have been on the chemo medications for 4-8 years. I have made it 2 years and hoping for more. I am looking for a cure so I can see my grandchildren grow up. Please help women everywhere by donating to this cause. The new research had helped with early detection and new treatments. Our chances of survival have improved each year. I am able to say this year I am a "two year survivor for the metastic breast cancer". You may donate online with your credit card by clicking the "Donate to Judy" button on the right side of this page. Your support helps us get another step closer to a world without breast cancer.
Your breast health?
The greatest risk factors for breast cancer are being female and growing older. Breast cancer knows no boundary, be it age, gender, socio-economic status or geographic location. One in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime. That's one in eight within your company, school and organization!
The key to survival is early detection. Three simple steps for early detection are regular mammograms, clinical exams and breast self-exams. And, remember, breast cancer affects more than just the patient; friends and family need support too.
What does Komen do?
For more than 25 years, Komen for the Cure has played a critical role in every major advance in the fight against breast cancer transforming how the world talks about and treats this disease, and helping to turn millions of breast cancer patients into breast cancer survivors.
Over the next 25 years, an estimated 25 million women around the world will be diagnosed with breast cancer if we don't find a cure. Komen will not stop until we discover and deliver the cures. That's our promise.
We Will Find the Cure!
