1 in 8 women will develop breast cancer over her lifetime. Even more family and friends will be impacted as they provide | and support.

Breast cancer can strike anytime, anywhere. My call came while I was sitting in my office on a college campus 39 hours before my busiest day of the year. And my response, “Are you sure?” No family history, eat well, exercise five days a week. I am now on a mission to empower and challenge women to take control of their health. If cancer found me, it can find you.

1,000 WOMEN STRONG

On September 10, 2012 I became a breast cancer survivor. To celebrate my one-year anniversary, I challenge at least 1,000 women to take action and ownership for their health. I ask that you please call and schedule a mammogram (and actually go to your appointment) or complete a self exam. Early detection can save your life. It did mine. Once you complete your exam, please add your name to our growing list of women who are taking charge of their lives and their health.
