As most of you know, my motivation to do this is my mom, Sheila A. Davis (S.A.D) who was diagnosed in 2013. It is because of the advances in research that mom did not have to do chemo. The more money that we can raise, the better research can get. My hope is that one day my daughter, and your daughter, will not have to worry about breast cancer.
Every year it seems like the story of someone else being diagnosed hits a little closer to home. This year a woman I trained while she was on mat leave was diagnosed. She discoved it through a self-breast exam. She is 37 with 2 beautiful boys, the same ages as my children. We need to find a cure.
Last year, with your generosity, I was the #3 top fundraiser in Kingston. I hope as a team we can raise even more money. Asking for money is uncomfortable and hard. I get that. Seeing what my mother went through was uncomfortable and hard too. Please post the link for your run page on your facebook. You might be surprised at how easy it is to raise money for such a great cause!
I am so happy that you have decided to be part of this team who is full of heart and hope!
