I registered for the Komen MORE THAN PINK™ Walk because I wanted to take action and be More Than Pink®. I raise funds in honor of my family and friends who have been diagnosed with breast cancer. And for family and friends who will be diagnosed in the future.
But this year I'm raising funds especially for my friend Pat who lives with metastatic breast cancer. She was cancer free for 16 years before she was diagnosed with MBC. There is no cure for this type of breast cancer. You may have seen commercials on TV and say, "there's treatment for it." That's true and I'm thankful for them. But what they don't say is the treatment won't last forever. It will become ineffective for everyone and they will have to move on and hope there is another type of treatment available. Those living with MBC will be in this pattern and fight for the rest of their lives.
That's why most of Komen's research right now is focusing on metastatic breast cancer. We need a cure! Will you please join me in this fight by making a donation today?
