What am I doing?
On October 30th, my trusty steed, Petie, and I are 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. I need to raise a minimum of $250 to reach my goal. If you can help, that would be great. To make it easy, you can make a tax-deductible donation today 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. If you want to send a check, please make it out toSGK NTX Ride for the Cure, and send to me at Phylis Mourning, 4640 Parker Ln., Midlothian, TX 76065.
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 is 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.
Thanks for your support,
