Hi Cake Central Family,

I am walking in the 3 Day Breast Cancer Walk in San Francisco September 5-7 in honor of my good friend's mom. She has endured a lumpectomy, grueling chemotherapy and then a double masectomy over the last 9 months.

I have been training and fundraising for about 4 months and I decided to reach out to my CC Friends & Family. I realize times are tight for everyone, but if you have the desire to donate to Breast Cancer Research, I would really appreciate your help. Your donations are tax deductible and benefit Susan G. Komen for the Cure and the National Philanthropic Trust.

Your donations can be made online at http://08.the3day.org/goto/krissie.angel

Thank you in advance for any financial support you can offer and even if you can't donate at this time, your good wishes are greatly appreciated.

Thanks!
Krissie

Congratulations on participating in that great cause!

I hop you also go to the Breast Cancer website and click to help give free mammograms (there is a thread here in the Lounge with a link.) In fact, here's the link right here:

I think you are a very good friend to support your friend's mother in this way. Good for you!

Thanks! I actually do click on the free mammogram button everyday. I signed up for an email reminder so there is a note in my inbox reminding me to click every day. They also have a large number of breast cancer shirts available for sale on that website. We have ordered some to wear on our walk. I'm a big fan of that site!
