What am I doing?
I'm riding to support the North Texas Affiliate of Susan G. Komen 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.
I am riding for family, cancer has affected many members of my family over the years. I am very grateful to be able to do what I love, ride a horse, and benefit a wonderful cause at the same time. I have been riding since middle school and although my riding discipline has changed over the years I still have trail riding in my heart. By sponsoring me in this ride you are helping to find a cure. As well as, helping me support my family members in a difficult battle and allowing me to go back to my childhood of endless trail rides with my best friend, My horse!
You may donate online with your credit card by clicking the "Support" button at the top of this page. 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.
We Will Find the Cure!
