Dear Family and Friends,
It’s that time of year again...and I’ve taken on even more than last year. Not only am I participating in the Susan G Komen 5K on June 6th, I’m also captain of a Relay For Life team. Relay for Life will be June 4th and 5th at Arlington High School.
I know it’s been a tough couple of years for everyone financially, but I’m counting on your continued support...
No worries though friends; I may be participating in 2 events, but I’m merely asking for double your time, not money. I’m hoping you can take the time to put half of your donation towards each event. Even if it’s only five dollars; $2.50 to each cause is such a huge help. You all know how important finding a cure is

Susan G Komen facts:
- 1 in 8 women is diagnosed with breast cancer
- the key to survival is early detection. 3 simple steps are yearly mammograms, clinical exams, and self exams.
- In 2007, thanks to a research grant from Susan G Komen scientists identified a set of 50 genes that oncologists can potentially use to tailor individualized treatments for all breast cancer patients.
Thank you for your support
Someday there will be a cure
