Why I am Making Strides
Because no one should walk alone in the fight of their life. Breast cancer in itself is devastating, but no one prepares you for that moment when you look in the mirror, and wonder who you’re looking at. Your hair is gone, your breasts are gone, everything that made you a woman taken, and you feel like a hollow shell of what used to be. I walk to prevent women from facing such a debilitating disease such as breast cancer. It isn’t just a cancer, it’s a destroyer. One who tries to destroy who you are physically, mentally, and emotionally. I will do everything I can to prevent anyone from having to go through this hell. I know that by raising funds and walking in the American Cancer Society Making Strides Against Breast Cancer event, I will help save lives from breast cancer, and prevent someone from going through this torture, or at least make it possible to inform them of what lies ahead.
I believe that one day breast cancer will never steal another year from anyone’s life. Making Strides is not only my opportunity to join my community to fight back against breast cancer, but it is also a way to inspire hope by raising funds and awareness to help those facing the disease. That’s why I’m walking.
