As a breast cancer survivor, I joined over 9,000 Southlanders at Griffith Park on June 14 to participate in the American Cancer Society’s Making Strides Against Breast Cancer pledge walk. I was proud to be a member of the team from Reach to Recovery who joined the throngs raising over $800,000 for the fight against breast cancer.
I dream that we all see the day when no woman will ever have to face the horror of this disease.The groundswell of support on June 14 brought us closer to the realization of this dream. I feel a bond of gratitude to every single strider and all of the pledge supporters, and to all of my wonderful and caring sponsors who contributed over $15,000.
Everyone’s extraordinary commitment to the American Cancer Society’s groundbreaking breast cancer research and local education and patient service programs has made a difference. I urge anyone with outstanding pledges to send them in so that this critical work can continue. Together we have taken a giant step toward a world free from breast cancer.
