What am I doing?
I'm participating in the Susan G. Komen San Antonio Race for the Cure on Saturday, May 1, 2010, because I want to make a difference in the fight to end breast cancer. Please help me reach my fundraising goal by making your donation today!
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, church or 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 San Antonio do?
Susan G. for the Cure is an innovative leader in the breast cancer movement and the battle that threatens our mothers, daughters, wives, sisters and friends. Established in 1997, the Komen San Antonio Affiliate has raised and invested more than $8.7 million. Seventy-five percent supports local nonprofit programs providing vital breast cancer screening, treatment and education right here in San Antonio. The remaining 25 percent goes to Susan G. Komen for the Cure Grants Program for groundbreaking breast cancer research and scientific programs around the world.
Imagine a life without breast cancer? I am asking your support to make this a reality. No donation is too small, anything you can give is appreciated!
