So this year I have decided to join the fight against breast cancer, and Race for the Cure in Houston, TX on October 3rd.
I registered yesterday and started to raise funds this morning. I have been truly amazed at people generosity. In less than an hour, I had to revise my goal upwards from 500$ to 1000$. Now I'm close to this new goal and am thinking of raising the bar again !
This is the reason for my post : you can also join me in the fight against breast cancer by pledging your support in the Race. Your tax-deductible contribution will fund local innovative outreach, awareness and treatment programs for the medically underserved in the greater Houston community as well as national cutting-edge breast cancer research.
Did you know?
- Every $100 raised will help someone without health insurance receive a much-needed mammogram
- A donation of $250 will pay for 5 clinical breast exams
- $1,000 will help pay for 1 round of the chemotherapy drug Taxotere
- The average cost of treatment including surgery and chemotherapy is $50,000

Thank you for your generosity. Imagine Life Without Breast Cancer.
