Lacey and I registered AGAIN for the Komen Race for the Cure because we want to make an impact in the fight against breast cancer. My sister Suzy will be joining us this year for the walk which is very special for us all! In the first half of 2016, Suzy and another of our sisters were diagnosed with breast cancer. Prognosis is good for them both and we thank God every day for His provisions and blessings.
Please consider making a tax-deductible donation today in support of our fundraising efforts.
Here is a reminder about why your support, and the support of those around you, is so critical:
- One in eight women in the U.S. will be diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime.
- Because every minute, somewhere in the world, someone dies from breast cancer.
- And because breast cancer knows no boundaries- be it age, gender, socio-economic status or geographic location.
- We continue to Race because at the current rate, 13 million breast cancer deaths around the world will occur in the next 25 years.
Together, we are fueling the best science, boldest community and biggest impact in the fight against breast cancer. And we will not stop until this disease is gone forever. That’s our promise. Will you please join us in this fight by making a donation today?
And when you participate and fundraise for the Race, we fight these statistics together. In 1980, the 5-year relative survival rate for women diagnosed with early stage breast cancer (cancer confined to the breast) was about 74 percent. Today, that number is 99 percent! Komen 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. This progress was made with your continued support and together we can reach our vision of a world without breast cancer.
Whatever you can give will help. Thank you and we will be sure to keep you posted on our fundraising progress!
Julie & Lacey Andrews 14 years and counting!!!!
AND sister Suzy!!!
