Over thirteen thousand New Yorkers will join over a thousand breast cancer survivors in Central Park on Sunday, September 10, 2017 for the Komen Greater NYC Race for the Cure. I was diagnosed in 2006, so this is an issue close to my heart (and elsewhere!) and I hope you will help in the fight. So many of us are affected by this disease --- supporting me in the Race means helping those who don't otherwise have access to the sort of medical care and support systems I did when I was disagnosed 11 years ago.
The Race is one day a year, but for women and families dealing with breast cancer, the fight is every day. Finding a cure is an ongoing effort.
Year by year, story by story, and dollar by dollar, the efforts of fundraisers save lives. We help tens of thousands of New Yorkers. The money we raise delivers food to women in treatment, offers transportation to chemo, and provides screenings. It also helps fund more research, reduce disparities, and find the cures.
I need your support… We all need your support. Please give generously, every dollar counts! Let’s race towards one goal: no one should die from breast cancer.
Join me, and together, we WILL create more survivors!
