I'm reposting a note my sister sent out about our Mother - we're running the Susan G Komen Race for the Cure in honor of our mother's successful fight against cancer. You can donate to our effort using this link or follow the offline instructions Miriam lists below.
Dear Friends and Family,
I hope this note finds you well.
I'm writing because I'd like you to join me in celebration! This week our mom Deborah received news of yet another cancer free screening! I remember the day in March of 2008 when she shared with us that she had been diagnosed with breast cancer. I wanted to fight it! Now that she is cancer free I want to make sure that others can achieve a similar winning outcome.
On Sunday September 12th we'll be running in the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure in Central Park. It's a 5K race to raise money in the fight against breast cancer.
Our team, "Team Bust a Move" has a fund-raising goal of $2000 this year. Please help me reach that goal with your financial support. Online donations are simple, and the site is secure.
