“1 in 8 women are diagnosed with breast cancer and
1% of all breast cancer patients are male”
It has been five years since I was diagnosed with breast cancer and I am fortunate enough to say four years cancer free, but there is not a day that goes by that I am not reminded of it in one way or another. Unlike myself they are not all fortunate enough to make it through the fight that goes with the tough ordeal of the treatment.
On October 6th, I will be walking with hundreds of other people who are going through treatment, are survivors or perhaps walking for the loss of a loved one. This year I am being joined by a very special young man, who I like to call my adopted son! This past year, his aunt, who was a very large and important part of his young life and up bringing, lost her battle with breast cancer.
Since the mid 1980’s there has been a 44% decline in the mortality rate which is huge but not good enough.
I ask that you find it in your hearts to make a donation to a cause that affects us all in one way or another. No amount is too small and your donation could be just enough to help them find the cure.
On behalf of my adopted son and myself we would like to thank you from The bottom of our hearts and we pray you and your loved ones never have to hear the words.
YOU HAVE CANCER
