LIVING STRONG

******

Join us for the 8th Annual Walk to Bust Cancer.  We raise funds that go directly to help right here in our community. We help women, men and families by providing assistance with  screening, diagnosis and treatment for breast cancer.

Funds raised  support the efforts of the National Breast Center Foundation to help low income and the uninsured to obtain  services, diagnosis and treatment for breast cancer.

You are making all this possible!

The need never goes away.  Your donations allow us to  continue this work every year providing help in the so many ways.   Finding ways to improve patients health, lessen the financial roadblocks to obtaining desperately needed treatment.  In addition, we are able to create cooperative relationships with the medical and research community.  All this because of the your generosity.

WALK TO BUST CANCER 2023 - SHIRT STATUS

October 13, 2023

We are overwhelmed with the response to this year's walk.  The number of walkers and donations has taken our breath away.  

 
We are very grateful that even as you read this,  we continue to see the numbers rise to unexpected heights.  Your demonstration of kindness is something we cannot find the right words to say other than a BIG THANK YOU.  So many will be assisted and lives saved due to your generosity.
 
With this success, approximately 200 additional walkers, we have exhausted our supply of shirts.  Anyone who registered by the cutoff, September 20, is guaranteed their shirt.   
We know that you understand our organization works to maximize the benefit of your donations and minimize excess. We could not have predicted this level of success in 2023. Clearly the message is spreading that the Foundation is making a difference.  
 
For this reason, we have decided to run a second printing of the shirts.  Unfortunately we cannot make this happen by Sunday's walk.  We want you to have your shirt.  So if your  shirt was not available at early pickup or when you arrive on Sunday  please email   walktobustcancerhelp@gmail.com with your name,and the shirt type and size you had originally requested. We will put together a second order and notify you of a local pick up date. 
 
The most important thing is that you join us on Sunday to walk with us to celebrate survivorship, lift up and support those currently battling, and honor and remember those we have lost.
