Walk season 2009 begins…

March 13, 2009

People ask me why I walk, and raise money, and am so involved with the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer.  To understand, watch this short video I made and look at the pictures of the youth crew members in their bright yellow sweatshirts.  The tears they shed are for mothers who have died from breast cancer.  One of them said at the evening activity at the Boston walk, she wishes she could have a hug from her mother.   Need I say more as to why I do this?

Money from the Avon Walk supports many organizations that help women coping with cancer right now. Including support for more than 95 “safety net” hospitals that treat the medically underserved, offering unique and vital Patient Navigator programs and state-of-the-art diagnostic equipment. The Avon Foundation has helped more than 1,000,000 women in the U.S. receive a mammogram. More than two-thirds of these women were uninsured, and more than half were from minority populations.

Your donation helps provide services to women who may otherwise not receive them because of  either inadequate health insurance or none at all.  Any amount is very much appreciated !  Learn more about the good work performed by the Avon Foundation and the Avon Walk –> http://avonwalk.org
