3 Days. 60 Miles ...

I wanted to share something with the people who have been following my journey on my blog Beneath The Petals.. Today I took a leap of faith and signed up for the 2014 Atlanta 3-day!!  Yes, I will be doing 60 miles in three days!!  I'm doing this for so many reasons.  As a one and a half year survivor I know first hand the importance of early detection and the need for more resources to help in our community.  The reason I am still here is because of early detection.  My mom is a three time survivor and I walk for her because she can't.  I walk for so many lives that have been lost.  My friend Tanisha lost her battle this year at 36 years old and leaves behind 2 young children and a husband.  We had the same kind of diagnosis...  My friend Tara lost her mom last year, ending her life way too soon.   More African American women are losing their lives from lack of early detections and late stage diagnosis.  You or someone you know has been affected by this disease I like to call the 'Monster'.  I ask for your support because you care and you want to help make a change.  My goal is to raise $2300.   Click the picture below to help me reach my goal.  Any amount will help.  Your name and amount will be posted as a donation for the cause.  I thank you in advance!   -Tracy
