My name is Shari Goldsmith. I am a wife, mother, sister, friend and I am a Breast Cancer survivor. In 2007, my breast cancer was caught during a routine sonogram. My mother; lost her battle with breast cancer at the age of fifty-two, I was twenty. My aunt (a BRCA carrier) also fought breast cancer but lost her battle to ovarian cancer.
I tested negative for the BRCA gene and was sure I had a free pass. In 2007 I was diagnosed. I had a double mastectomy and 5 months of chemo. During my treatment, I created a 501(3)(c) non- profit organization called The WTFC. One hundred percent of the proceeds are donated to breast cancer researchers all over the country and we spread awareness through our WTFC message of “living for today”!
Please join me and team "The WTFC" as we support the Susan G Komen “Race for the Cure”. Last year our team raised over $64,900 giving us a eight-year total of over $254,000. This is our 9th year of participation. We have had the largest community team for three years in a row with over 100 walkers and we have the coolest t-shirts! So please register and join us today!
Together, the funds we raise help tens of thousands of our fellow New Yorkers. Funding mammograms, clinical breast exams, support services for women, men, and families, education, and of course research.
Last year alone, our efforts resulted in nearly 1,000 cases of breast cancer being diagnosed right here in our area. That is nearly 1,000 examples of life-saving treatments for women you may know! Together we DO create more survivors.
