Welcome to My Fundraising Page!
Welcome to the page I never thought I'd have for myself!
Two years ago, a few months after my breast cancer diagnosis, my wonderful friends joined up to create this team for me. Over the course of the next six months, I was diagnosed with 4 different kinds of breast cancer, and a minimum of 5 cancerous growths. Since then, I've had 6 surgeries, plus lots of treatment and a bunch of unexpected complications.
Over the past two years, Janna's Boob Squad has raised over $12,000. The Run for the Cure is about fundraising and I am truly grateful for the research that this supports - after all, my treatment plan benefitted from this research. But to me, this event is about my community. It is about my friends and family who have stood beside me for the past 2+ years and who continue to stand by me. Research dollars are great - they lead to better and more effective treatments, and in turn, more good days lived. But I couldn't get through any of these treatments as easily without the many great people who have supported me, encouraged me, cried with me, laughed with me and held my hand when I needed it.
The first year I participated in the Run, it was 3 weeks after my mastectomy, and 3 weeks prior to my next surgery. I walked the 1K - slowly - with my friends by my side. This year, I will either run or walk the 5K with my friends by my side. If you want to run or walk with me and my team, great! If you want to donate, that's great, too! If you don't want to do either, but want to join us for brunch after the Run, that's also great!
Thanks for your continued love and support, and for taking the time to read this.
Love, Janna xoxo
PS I don't "promise to run" - I promise to show up and walk or run or maybe both
