This Sunday, you have the chance to be a part of something big and make a big difference. You have the chance to help raise awareness for the fight against breast cancer so that we can continue working toward the day that no person will ever have to hear the words "you have breast cancer."
I've heard those words, but I didn't let them define me. I took a stance
against breast cancer and said that I will not sit back and watch it touch
individuals I love and others I have never met. I joined the American Cancer
Society's Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk to do my part in this
Join me and the thousands of other community members as we rally around this important cause. Join us at Louisville's Waterfront Park at 1 p.m. Sunday to help us get one step closer to making breast cancer a thing of the past. If you are a breast cancer survivor, join me and the other survivors at the starting line at noon as we form a "Living Ribbon of Hope." This visual will help raise awareness of the cause and rally all survivors together to help lead this year's walk!
In the past two decades, the breast cancer death rate has dropped 32 percent, thanks in part to the American Cancer Society's research. Let's come together to be one voice to say "We want a world with less breast cancer and more birthdays!" I'll see you at the starting line!
