I'll be biking 15 miles, running 3 miles and swimming 1/3 of a mile in the ocean in memory of my Nana Marie, who succumbed to breast cancer in her 40's. I'll be doing it for my mother and mother-in-law who are breast cancer survivors because we've learned so much about the disease since I lost my Nana. I'll be doing it in the hopes that my daughter won't have to fear her genetics. And I'll be doing it because this is the year of the woman and I feel like roaring.
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. 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.
Every dollar counts! Please consider a donation. Cancer tries but we TRI harder!
