2016 Komen Texarkana Race for the Cure

Team Paula

Welcome to our Komen Race for the Cure team page! We are looking forward to another great event this year. This will be Team Paula’s third year to participate in the race and we have collectively raised over $2500 to support the Texarkana Area Komen foundation.

My dear friend Michelle founded Team Paula to show support in my breast cancer battle. This was a great event and I am proud that while I live in the Dallas area now, I can come “home” and support the local area I grew up in and raise money to support the many women (and men) who battle this disease. Since 75% of the funds raised stays here in the Texarkana area, we help support those in our local communities. I do sometimes participate in some of the events in Dallas, but I feel like a $1 goes a lot farther to support people in our area that don’t always have the same resources available in a bigger metropolitan area.

As for me, I am now a three year survivor and am doing awesome!!! I’m still taking an oral chemo medication but have finished all my iv port treatments. I also have a full head of hair again! This year I have decided that I might still wear my tiara to the race but I am NOT wearing a hat so I can celebrate having my real hair! I’m still working to regain my strength but that just takes a long time. I’m strong in faith, strong in spirit, so the body will just have to catch up! This Team has been a wonderful blessing to me and I love each and every one of you! I hope you will join me and Michelle this year and celebrate, honor and support all of those affected by cancer.

Go Team Paula!
