Welcome to My Personal Page
It's not often that those of us who are blessed with good lives get the opportunity to give back. So whenever I can, I generally try to. But when the cause is personal, giving back takes a whole new meaning and a much deeper kind of passion. Over 2 decades ago now, I took on the cause of finding a cure for breast cancer because I lost an aunt to the disease. My very first run was dedicated to her memory. Not too long after then however, as I was looking at my mom, my sisters and niece, I quickly realized that the true reason I was running was them. The thought of losing even one of them to breast cancer was unimaginable. I looked around me further and realized just how many more special and important women I had in my life... strong and loving women who not only inspired me, but in many cases, also nurtured me into the person that I've become. Reading through the statistics and information about breast cancer at that time, I knew that I needed to get involved. I wanted to do whatever I can so that if any of them had to face this disease, their odds of beating it would be better. I knew I had to keep running for them. And for 21 years now, I've been doing just that.
Thankfully, what I've been doing is making a difference. Today, the survivability rate of breast cancer is much improved. Thanks to the efforts of many others like me who had personally taken on this cause, more and more women are still with their loved ones today after battling with breast cancer. But the job is not yet done. We do not have a cure yet. And until we do, I will keep on running for those who I love! One day, we will find a cure. And then who knows, maybe when we do find one for breast cancer, the cure for all other types of cancer will not be too far behind.
So please join me in this fight! Whether you're simply looking for a way to give back, or if you've been affected by cancer directly or indirectly yourself, or if like me, you also feel like you want to give the women in your life a better chance in case they end up having to fight for their life battling this disease, please either come Run For The Cure with me on October 6th OR support my fund raising efforts through your donations. Your support would be greatly, sincerely and personally appreciated. No amount is too small, for it is always the size of the heart that's giving that counts the most! We all can make a difference in our own personal way!
