Dear Friends and Family,
I recently accepted the challenge to raise funds to support the Komen Portland Race for the Cure® on September 21st in the fight to save lives and end breast cancer forever.
Did you know that Susan G. Komen for the Cure® locally helps to provide more than 7,000 free screening mammograms for the uninsured women of Oregon and SW Washington who otherwise cannot afford them? Unfortunately, 37,000 more local women need mammograms but don't get them. That is why I am fundraising and joining this year's Race, to help Susan G. Komen for the Cure save lives through early detection.
Imagine the impact...
Seventy-five percent of the dollars you donate will fund vital services across Oregon and SW Washington, while twenty-five percent will be combined with other Affiliates' funds to fuel national breast cancer research at an unprecedented level.
- $10 funds ten support booklets for newly diagnosed breast cancer patients.
- $25 pays for a gas card for a low-income woman driving over 75 miles one way to get a mammogram.
- $77 can fund a free screening mammogram for one uninsured woman
By making a donation in this year's Race you can make a difference.
Thank you for joining in our promiste to create a world without breast cancer!
