I need you support in my Avon Walk for Breast Cancer

As you already know, I have decided to participate in the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer. Breast Cancer. Cancer... The word no one wants to hear and no one wants to say. In this case, it hits close to home. Breast Cancer deprived me of a phenomenal woman 12 years ago. This woman was my mom. My mom didn't let her illness define her or her life even though until the very end she fought with all her might. So I am making it my duty, being her daughter, to continue where she left off. I decided to continue her fight. This is such an important cause to me because this year, an estimated 40,000 women will die from the disease. Breast cancer takes another life every 14 minutes. Another woman is diagnosed with breast cancer every 3 minutes. An estimated three million women are living with breast cancer. One million of them don't yet know it.

As part of the event, I pledged to raise money. I would love your support so that I can reach my fundraising goal. With the donations raised, the Avon Foundation will provide support and resources for women affected by this terrible disease. This will help so many people in our own community and throughout the country. Any amount you can give is great; I just appreciate your support.

It is faster and easier than ever to support this great cause — you can make a donation online by simply clicking on the link at the bottom of this message. Whatever you can give will help! I truly appreciate your support and will keep you posted on my progress.

Thank you for supporting me always, but especially in this challenge; you really do make a difference.
