"Cowgirl Up" for the Cure!
Hello To All My Family & Friends....
What am I doing?
I'm riding to support the North Texas Affiliate of Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure because I want to make a difference in the fight against breast cancer. Please help me reach my fundraising goal by making a tax-deductible donation today.
As many of you know I have started riding later in life and I am thrilled to have this opportunity to give back. I will be riding with my new horse partner "Sarah" on a four hour trail ride for this great cause. I have always wanted to be a part of finding a cure for cancer and now I have been given the opportunity to help find it by doing the "Ride For The Cure".
You may donate online with your credit card by clicking the "MAKE A GIFT" button under the thermometer. Your support helps us get another step closer to a world without breast cancer.
Your breast health?
The greatest risk factors for breast cancer are being female and growing older. Breast cancer knows no boundary, be it age, gender, socio-economic status or geographic location. One in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime. That?s one in eight within your company, school and organization!
The key to survival is early detection. Three simple steps for early detection are regular mammograms, clinical exams and breast self-exams. And, remember, breast cancer affects more than just the patient; friends and family need support too.
What does Komen do?
For more than 25 years, Komen for the Cure has played a critical role in every major advance in the fight against breast cancer ? transforming how the world talks about and treats this disease, and helping to turn millions of breast cancer patients into breast cancer survivors.
Over the next 25 years, an estimated 25 million women around the world will be diagnosed with breast cancer if we don?t find a cure. Komen will not stop until we discover and deliver the cures. That?s our promise.
Together We Will Find the Cure!
