Join me in the fight against breast cancer

Please support me as I take an amazing journey in the fight against breast cancer! The Breast Cancer 3-Day is a 60-mile walk over the course of three days. Net proceeds benefit Susan G. Komen for the Cure and National Philanthropic Trust, funding important breast cancer research, education, screening, and treatment.

Our Story

My mommy's best friend, Laurie, is a breast cancer survivor for more than a decade. Since the day of the diagnosis, their lives have become intertwined with the national breast cancer efforts to prevent and possibly cure this cancer. Along the way, they bonded with hundreds of new friends, but also lost many precious buddies too. This year, I am finally old enough to experience what they see and feel at these 3 day events! Please support our cause with any kind gestures; either through raising awareness of breast cancer or with monetary donations. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

History

Here is a list my mommy wrote about her 3Day history:

I began by 3 Day journey in 2000 walking the LA 3 Day with my friend Laurie, also Pit 4 crew this year. We started off with a bang as it rained buckets that week-end, in fact, we did all 22.47 miles of day 3 in the pouring rain! What a way to start!
2001 I walked in San Francisco with my cousin
2002 Laurie and I walked San Diego
2003 Laurie and I did lunch crew in San Diego
2004 Laurie and I did sweep van for LA what a blast that was!
2005 walked San Diego met Mette training.
2006 walked San Diego again
2007 lunch crew in San Diego with Laurie & Mette
2008 walked Seattle with Mette, we grew bored with the flat, warm, ocean views of San Diego;-)
2009 rocking Pit 4 in San Francisco with Laurie, Mette, all of you and for the first time my daughter-Amelia- who lives in Berkeley.


Intense huh? I am so excited to finally be able share this part of my mom's life with her!
