Below is a letter I received.I know the request is genuine and I'm putting it up here because I believe this is the most caring group of people that it has been my pleasure to know. Both my parents died of some form of cancer and I consider this way of helping just a little bit of my share towards finding a cure for this terrible disease. Now on to the letter!
This year, I'll be participating in a very special event called the
Breast Cancer 3-Day.
I'll walk 60 miles over the course of three days with thousands
of other women and men. The net proceeds will support breast
cancer research, education, screening and treatment through
the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation and the
National Philanthropic Trust Breast Cancer Fund.
I've agreed to raise at least $2,200 in donations. I've set my
personal goal at $6,600. So I need your help. Would you please
consider making a donation that's right for you. Please keep in
mind how far I'm walking -- and how hard I'll have to train.
According to the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation,
approximately 200,000 American women will be diagnosed with
breast cancer this year, and nearly 40,000 will die from the
disease. All our lives have been touched by breast cancer in
some way. That's why I'm walking so far! . I h ope that you'll
share this incredible adventure with me -- by supporting me in
my fundraising efforts.
Thank you in advance for your generosity!
