Why am I walking?
I know we all have all had a loved one or know someone who was directly
affected by cancer. For me it was my grandmother who passed away
last October 21st in 2009. For those of you who are
very close to me, you know how important she was to me. I am doing this
in her honor and would please ask for your help in meeting my
fundraising goal for all of our family, loved ones and friends who have
ever been affected by cancer.
Today, there is more hope than ever for people facing breast cancer. However, there is much work to be done. Every day, the American Cancer Society is helping people stay well by taking steps to reduce their risk of breast cancer or find it early, when it is most treatable; helping people get well with information, day-to-day help, and emotional support to guide them through every step of a breast cancer experience; by finding cures and promising new treatments through funding and conducting research; and by fighting back by working with lawmakers to help all women get access to screenings and care.
I believe that one day, breast cancer will never steal another year from anyone’s life – and we will live in a world with less breast cancer and more birthdays. That’s why I’m walking in the American Cancer Society Making Strides Against Breast Cancer event. Not only is this my opportunity to join my community to fight back against breast cancer, it is a way to inspire hope by raising funds and awareness to help those facing the disease and save more lives.
And you can be a part of it, too.
The event will take place here:
Date: Sunday, October 10, 2010
Location: Philadelphia Museum of Art
Time: 9:00 am

Anyone who would like to walk with me will receive a free t-shirt for showing their support. I need to know if you would like to walk by Tuesday as that is when we are placing the order shirts. You can email me at LawsonRE@gmail.com to let me know.
I have signed up to walk and I hope you will join me in my effort by signing up to join my team or making a donation in support of my participation. Together, we can save lives from breast cancer!
