At the end of December 2020 during my annual mammogram, a mass was detected. On January 11, 2021 I was diagnosed with Triple Negative Breast Cancer (TNBC). Who knew that breast cancer has 4 main causes? And I hit the lottery with one of the most aggressive of breast cancers! I went through 12 weeks of chemo, lumpectomy, radiation and now chemo pills until April 8, 2022. My cancer was caught in early stages (2B) and has a high recovery rate. I consider myself very blessed that I got my mammogram and this was found.
Did you know that 1 in 4 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer at some time in their life?
What if I had not had insurance or money to get my annual mammograms? With this aggressive cancer, maybe I would be very sick this year or not here.
Pledge The Pink is a 10 mile per day, 3 day walk to raise funds for breast cancer awareness and mammograms. Yes, I am going to walk 30 miles within 6 months of ending my cancer treatment! The why is because I want to do my part to ensure that no woman dies of breast cancer because they could not afford a mammogram.
The average cost of a mammogram without insurance is $80 to $100. (source: https://www.healthline.com/health/womens-health/3d-mammogram#cost-without-insurance).
If 2 people donate $50, that is 1 mammogram. If 4 people donate $20, that is 1 mammogram. If 8 people donate $10, that is 1 mammogram. If 16 people donate $5, that is 1 mammogram. The point here is that of course I would hope you would donate as much as possible – but even $5 helps!!!
Won’t you help me with my goal of 50 mammograms – that’s $5,000. I know that is a hefty goal, but if we all work together we can reach that goal.
Thank you for your support!
