I’m asking for your help. My friend Joy is participating in the Breast Cancer 3-day Walk (www.the3day.org). As a team, she and her co-walker need to raise a MINIMUM of $4400 to be a part of the event. Please read Joy’s letter below and help if you can. Joy lost her Mom to cancer when she was just a young girl, so I think it’s AWESOME that she is doing something to help find a cure. I’d really like to help her out. I donated– will you? Send me an email with your reciept # from the donation by Friday June 13th and I will draw for a free regular portrait session and 11×14 print ($195 value). THANK YOU….it really is for a good cause- all proceeds go to the Susan G Komen for the Cure.

From Joy:

Yes, I’m doing it again – I signed up for the 2008 Breast Cancer 3-Day! I had such an incredible experience doing the 3-Day last time, that I’m going back for more. AND I have recruited a friend to join me making a team!! I’m so excited about this event, even though this year I really know what I’ve gotten myself into.

This event isn’t easy, but I promise you, I wouldn’t be doing it if I didn’t believe 100% that it was worth every muscle ache, weary night and training walk.

We need your help. I am planning on surpassing the $2,100 – my friends and family – gave so generously last time around to help fight breast cancer. Combined as a team, our minimum to participate in the walk is $4,400, but we want to reach beyond that, with a team goal of $5,000!!!!

Cancer in every shape and form sucks. I am convinced that this fight against breast cancer is a fight that will open up many doors to the progression towards eliminating all forms of cancer.

Cancer has claimed too many lives, one of them being my Mom. Cancer stole her life from me when I was eight years old. As a child I worried all the time thinking that that is how I would die too. I had always hoped that there would be no more cancer by the time I was a mom. Now, I am a mom. And Instead of hoping for a cure, I am doing something. I am walking, I am fighting, but I need your help.

Leah (my co-walker) and I are in the planning stages of many fundraising events. Visit our Team Webpage, www.4ourwalk.com to view upcoming events, past events, pictures, and our fundraising progress.
