On Saturday, August 27th,2022 I will be joining The Olive Branch Of Hope Cancer Support Services to participate in their 2022 One Dream Walk of Hope Walkathon.
This organization raises funds to benefit individuals and families affected by cancer, particularly in Women of African Ancestry.
I learned that Women of African Ancestry are more at risk of being diagnosed at a much younger age with a more aggressive form of breast cancer called Triple Negative Breast Cancer, which is often fatal.
Did you know that…
- Women of African Ancestry are at a higher risk of developing breast cancer and will probably die from it before the age of 40?
- Researchers have found that there is a genetic mutation linked to this aggressive type of breast tumor, but more research is needed to find out WHY it is related to this specific group?
Research is crucial and our research partners from McMaster University, headed by Dr. Juliet Daniel, is currently working with us to shed light on this problem and help us save lives!
Please help us to reach our fundraising goals.
Simply click the name of the person you would like to support and see their Personal Fundraising Page in order to sponsor them or make a donation.
Thank you in advance for your generosity!
