As you may already know, October is Breast Cancer Awareness month. I've always tried to raise awareness by raising money and joining walks ever since I can remember. I believe my first walk was sometime in 2000? Maybe 2002? I've donated my time, money and physical being to raising awareness to this cause, and others such as March for Babies, AIDS, Autism and Alzheimer's to name a few, and will continue for as long as I can.
In the past year, Breast Cancer hit a lot closer to home than ever before. My son's aunt, Emma, was diagnosed with Breast Cancer and has been fighting ever since. My childhood friend, Janet, was also diagnosed with Breast Cancer and also continues to fight. They both fight everyday and do it with smile and grace and I admire their strength more than they can ever, ever imagine.
• There are about 2.5 million breast cancer survivors alive in the U.S. today.
• One woman is diagnosed with breast cancer every three minutes, and one woman will die of breast cancer every 13 minutes in the U.S.
Everyone has somehow been affected by Breast Cancer and I'm asking for your help to raise money for The Making Strides Against Breast Cancer event. Any amount helps, even as little as a dollar, and is very much appreciated!

This year I am offering a dozen dipped pretzel sticks (pictured below) to anyone who donates at least $25. Please do not feel obligated to do so, as I said, any amount is greatly appreciated and every little bit helps!!!

With lots of love and support,
Thank you all for your continued support and may we all help in finding a cure and raising awareness!!!!!
