Organizations everywhere have been hard hit by the pandemic-induced recession. Many of their largest fundraisers have had to be postponed or cancelled, yet their work is ongoing. This year my dragon boat team, Pink Phoenix, the first all-breast cancer dragon boat team in the US, has not been able to race. Because of this, we will be pitching in to support the Susan G. Komen Foundation by sponsoring the registration for all of our members to participate and fundraise for the More Than Pink Walk. We all remember the experience of being diagnosed, receiving treatment, and needing the resources the Komen Foundation provides and supports. I will be walking on Sunday, August 23, 2020, in support of all of the women I have known and loved who have had a breast cancer diagnoses and this year I will be walking with a very dear friend in my heart who is currently in the fight.
Please contribute to help me raise $250 towards this cause, remember…it’s tax deductible. You would be a part of Komen’s work to safe lives through breakthrough research, advocacy, and to help support patients through Komen’s Breast Care Helpline, Clinical Trial Information Helpline, Treatment Assistance Program, and many other direct patient support service such as screening, diagnosis, treatment, transportation, and child care so affected patients can focus on getting well.
Together, we are fueling the best science, boldest community, and biggest impact in the fight against breast cancer. We will not stop until this disease is gone forever. That is our promise. Will you please join me in this fight by donating today? It is so appreciated.
