Boobie Tuesday - Support

WE DID IT!!!

My fundraising target has been met! And we are still a little under 2 weeks away! 
We have currently raised $1150 for Breast Cancer Research!

I am honestly over the moon excited, and completely overwhelmed by all of your love and support. Thank you so much to everyone who has donated and has helped to spread the word about this cause. This project has been so important to me and your love, kindness, and generosity has gone above and beyond anything I could have hoped for!

When I signed up for this race, I knew that it wasn't just going to be a race for me. Not unlike a lot of things I have done this year, this run was more of a symbol of hope. This run was meant to bring my personal journey full-circle.

I owe my life to the amazing cutting edge research being done in the medical field, and that is by no means an exaggeration. In a different time, in a different place, I would not have been given these options, and I would not have had the choice that I am so grateful for. So it was incredibly important for me to be able to give back.

In my brief 26 years in this world, and within my own own small corner of this planet; I have watched three generations of women face this disease and battle it in their own way. Breast Cancer has become a very prominent fixture in my world over the last two years; during my mother's diagnosis, the revelation of our family's genetic link, and my own journey to treat this disease preventatively - but I am not alone.

I dream of a world with a cure.
I hope for a future where women are not asked to make difficult choices.
And I pray for a world without cancer.

I believe we can beat cancer within our lifetime.
And every dollar we raise goes towards finding that elusive cure. So let's stand together and FIGHT!
