  • both of my grandmas & an aunt both had it & survived it. one of my grandmas had to have a mastectomy & has been a surviver for almost 20 years. my sister-IL's mom is currently battling it & it looks like she is winning!

    i dont help as much as i should. i buy stuff that has the pink label on it so some of my purchase goes towards research. i want to do the walk, but im so outta shape i dont think i would get very far.

  • Buying items with the pink ribbon is meaningless!!

    Avon and Mary Kay, among others, make a big public show of their support of breast cancer research and victims, yet refuse to stop using cancer causing ingredients in their products.

  • my mom and I are the only women in my family that haven't had it. (she's got 4 sisters)

    I do the weekend to end breast cancer - 60k walk every summer. raise $2000 and walk. this was my 5th year

    I am also doing the 200k ride to conquer cancer next year - but that will be in honor of my FIL who died from brain cancer.

  • I don't have anyone in my family nor any close friends who have dealt with BC. But because it is such a huge issue for women, I decided to do the 3Day 60 mile Susan G. Komen for the Cure walkathon last November. It was the hardest thing I've ever done in my life, but the experience was fantastic and it was for such a great cause. It's something I am very proud of.

  • My Great Grandma died from breast cancer, my Grandma beat cancer twice, my Mother, and 3 of my Aunts beat it. I give $ every chance I get, have done 1 walk (my area does not really have anything) And I buy off the breast cancer web site every chance I get.
