For the past few years, we have gotten together to host a breast cancer fundraiser within our tight-knit community. Although we are all friends, we have become so close, we are practically sisters. We now refer to each other as “sissy”.
Breast cancer, well any cancer for that matter, has affected each member of the group. Unfortunately, it has really "hit home" with one member in particular. She has been dealing with lumps, mammograms, breast MRI's, and breast ultrasounds since she was 23 years old! Her mother successfully battled breast cancer twice! She made an ultimate, selfless decision to have a prophylactic bilateral mastectomy with reconstructive surgery when she was 27 years old (just like Angelina Jolie).
This event is near and dear to all of our hearts. We started off small with local businesses donating gift certificates to raffle off as a tricky-tray but as the years have progressed, so have the prizes! Last year we raised over $12,000 but our goal this year is closer to $15,000!
Once again, we have made an exciting commitment to become a YSC Champion with our campaign: We Fight Like A Girl. The money we raise will go to support Young Survival Coalition (YSC), the premier non-profit organization dedicated to supporting and educating young women affected by breast cancer.
Any amount helps!
Thank you, in advance, for your support. We truly appreciate your generosity.
