    Hello Ladies,

    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


    Please click here to support my participation. I truly appreciate your support and will keep you posted on my progress.

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

    Sincerely,

    Muriel
