Revlon Run/Walk for Breast Cancer

On Saturday, May 7th, my friend Carrie will be participating in the 12th Annual Revlon Run/Walk For Women in Los Angeles. It is estimated that one in eight American women will develop breast cancer at some point in her life. In 2005, more than 211,000 new cases of breast cancer will be diagnosed, while more than 22,000 will be diagnosed with ovarian cancer.

To date, the Run/Walks (LA/NY) have distributed over 30 million dollars for cancer research, counseling, and outreach programs. Thanks in part to these funds, new treatments are being developed and lives are being saved.

You absolutely ROCK for posting this!!! My great-grandmother was first diagnosed with breast cancer, had a masectomy and was clean for just shy of the 5 year mark. The cancer came back...first in her ovaries and then it spread to her brain...after chemo AND radiation, she succumbed to the disease. My grandmother had pre-cancerous cells removed from her ovaries about a year and a half ago and I have a friend from high school who's mom was just diagnosed with breast cancer this Jan. and is currently undergoing chemo. Cancer in women is a SERIOUS offender and if I can do something to help people in the future, to remember those who have passed and to honor those currently fighting the battle...I will do it! Thanks for anyone's help!! GREATLY appreciated....Bless ya.
