I want to do this challenge to celebrate being cancer free after 10 years of being diagnosed with breast cancer. My family and I went through a traumatic time of thinking I could die from this disease. My own mother had been diagnosed of breast cancer and died at the age of 47. Imagine my thoughts when I was diagnosed the same age as her!!! If it wasn’t for cancer research I wouldn’t be here today. Still Childminding, coaching, officiating and loving life. Please dig deep everyone. This is so a well worth6 cause and very close to my heart.
