Together We Will
Dear Friends and Family,
The picture left sits on the dresser in my bedroom and each day it reminds me of how blessed I am to be an almost eight year breast cancer survivor. Every February, Paul and I participate in DONNA Marathon weekend with gratitude for my ongoing health.
The DONNA Marathon weekend is the flagship fundraiser for The DONNA Foundation (https://thedonnafoundation.org). The mission of The DONNA Foundation is to provide financial assistance and support to those living with breast cancer and fund breast cancer research. During our 2020-21 season we served over 1,500 breast cancer patients - delivering debt relief and financial support - and delivered another grant to the Mayo Clinic Breast Center's Translational Genomics Research Program.
If you ask anyone who has been a participant in the DONNA Marathon weekend they will tell you it's about love and support. Everywhere you look, you witness encouragement for those in the midst of their fight with cancer, celebrations of survivorship and remembrance of those who have been lost to this disease. This year I'm dedicating my half marathon to all the women who live with metastatic breast cancer. It is they who run the true marathon and I will be sending them my love and support as I walk my 13.1 miles.
As the chair of the DONNA Foundation Board, I ask for your help to meet our overarching fundraising goal of $500,000.
The need continues to be great. Thank you for your support.
Much love and gratitude,
