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. I was relieved to find an organization working on our behalf to identify and eliminate the environmental causes of breast cancer.

Since then, I’ve raised funds for and participated in thirteen Peak Hikes. I was training to climb Mt. Shasta with the 2003 Climb Against the Odds team when I was diagnosed a second time. The encouragement and support I received from the Breast Cancer Fund and my team gave me hope and strength as I again faced cancer.

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.
