For those of you who don’t know, in January 2018 I was diagnosed with breast cancer. I apologize if you are being informed in this manner. It’s stage 1 invasive ductal carcinoma and it is treatable. I am already on that journey and promise to continue the fight all the way through to get to the other side. Ironically, I received several requests from various friends to buddy up on the tri for a cure this year. My friend kate asked me the same week as my diagnosis without being aware. I felt compelled to say yes even though I knew not what my treatment options would be and how I would be feeling. My plan this year is to do the bike portion. I have been set up in my house with a borrowed trainer and road bike from some of my wonderful friends. I plan on training through the spring so I’m ready to rock it out in July. I need to raise at least $500 so I’m asking you all to help with that. Please consider supporting me and my fight against cancer as well as, all the other beautiful people out there that have been affected by this disease. I am so lucky to know each and every one of you and have you in my life in whatever capacity that you are. Thank you for all of your support. And who knows? Maybe I’ll do the whole damn thing next year...xo, Janine
Support me in the fight against cancer!
This year I'll be participating in the 11th Annual Maine Cancer Foundation Tri for a Cure. Maine Cancer Foundation is committed to reducing cancer incidence and mortality rates in Maine, with 100% of funds raised by the Foundation used to benefit the people of Maine. They lead a state-wide effort to advance the most promising and effective cancer-fighting efforts available through a combination of grant-based financial support and coalition building. MCF's Challenge Cancer 2020 initiative is working to reduce cancer incidence and mortality in Maine 20% by 2020 through prevention, screening and early detection, and access to the highest quality care for every Mainer.
