2011 Race For The Cure: Blisters For Becky

A local friend’s mother was recently diagnosed with breast cancer. She has since had a double mastectomy and thought she was on the road to healing. A routine visit with her doctor yesterday delivered some bad news she was not expecting. You can follow Becky’s journey and learn more at “Boobs in a Vise“.

According to the Susan G. Komen site, in the year 2011 it is estimated that among U.S. women:

  • There will be 230,480 new cases of invasive breast cancer (includes new cases of primary breast cancer among survivors, but not recurrence of original breast cancer among survivors).
  • There will be 39,520 breast cancer deaths.

What can we do to help women like Becky? We can show our support by joining forces with the Susan G. Komen foundation! You can join Becky’s walking team, donate¬†and/or keep her in your prayers!
