When I was first diagnosed with breast cancer in 1993, I began searching for answers. Why, if I had none of the traditional risk factors, did I get breast cancer? How could I protect my daughters and granddaughters? That’s when I learned about the Breast Cancer Fund.

As a two-time survivor, mother of two and grandmother of six, it’s so important to me to be involved in and to support the groundbreaking work of the Breast Cancer Fund. If each of us takes action now by donating what we can to this critical work, we’ll effectively reduce the risk of breast cancer for our daughters, granddaughters and future generations. Please join me in giving.
