My Name is Anne and my family has been hit hard by cancer. I've had 2 grandparents die of cancer and my father is currently fighting prostate cancer. Two of my aunts are breast cancer survivors so I decided I want to give back help find a cure.

I'm hoping to participate in the Susan G Komen 3 Day walk in San Diego, CA in November. Registered walkers agree to raise a minimum of $2,200 for the Breast Cancer 3-Day benefiting Susan G. Komen for the Cure and the National Philanthropic Trust Breast Cancer Fund, in order to walk. It's a lot to raise, in a short time, but I'm determined.

If I don't make enough for the November walk I will continue to raise money and participate in the July 2009 walk in Boston.

I'm sorry I had to edit your contact information from the message. This is a terrific cause, however fund raising of any sort is not allowed on the forum. Good luck with your efforts.

Susan G. Komen for the Cure has contributed much in the battle against breast and cervical cancer,

While Komen foundation has invested heavily in the fight against breast cancer, you can bet that most of the women who come here for support in their own personal battles with this disease are walking, sewing, running, cooking, quilting, and the list goes on... for a cure themselves. We appreciate your efforts to help in the fight. But if we supported everyone who came here looking to raise funds, we'd all be broke!

As Judy stated, we appreciate your efforts and wish you well.
