Twelve years ago, my sister Shauna and I were diagnosed with breast cancer. We had multiple surgeries, chemotherapy, and other unpleasant treatments. We made it through together and hoped that it was over forever. It is with a broken heart that I write this... My sisters cancer is back. Although it was caught early, it is in her spine as well. Thankfully there have been many advances in metastatic breast cancer in the last 12 years. Fortunately Shauna is a strong, brave and most importantly a true warrior! I know she will beat this. She is my hero!
So this year we are once again committing to participate in YSC Tour de Pink, a three-day, 200 mile bike ride for breast cancer. My sister may not be able to ride all the miles but we are doing this ride in her name! We want to raise funds to benefit all those young women, including my sister, who need the Young Survival Coalition's support in fighting this terrible disease. Please help us with a donation.
Your donation will go to support Young Survival Coalition and ensure that no young woman faces breast cancer alone. YSC is the premier organization providing supportive services and education resources for young women affected by breast cancer.
YSC Tour de Pink is much more than just a bike ride, it’s a chance to honor survivors, raise awareness and support important programs for young women affected by breast cancer. I hope I can count on you to help me reach my fundraising goal!
How will your donation help?
$25 could fund YSC materials at three healthcare providers’ offices.
$100 could provide a Newly Diagnosed Navigator to six women when they need it most.
$250 could allow us to train four survivors to serve as peer supporters.
$500 could fund a Young Empowered Survivor (YES) educational program.
$1,200 could pay for two young women to travel to our annual conference for young women affected by breast cancer.
Any amount helps!
As I train for this amazing ride I plan to update this page frequently along with my social media accounts so that all of my supporters can see my progress.
Thank you in advance for your support. I truly appreciate your generosity.
