I'm participating in the Georgetown Lombardi's Breast Cancer walk on May 2nd, which is near and so dear to my heart. My incredible Momma was treated there 7 years ago and I owe these incredible people (plus many others) her LIFE! 1 out of 5 women will get Breast Cancer in their lifetime, 3 million in the US currently, and it is the second most common cause of death from cancer in women in the United States, after lung cancer. However, since 1989, the number of women who have died of breast cancer has steadily decreased thanks to early detection and treatment improvements..let's keep that going.

Each person’s chance of recovery depends on many factors, including access to good care, the size of the tumor, the number of lymph nodes that contain cancer, and other features of the tumor that affect how quickly a tumor will grow and how well treatment works. I acknowledge our privledge in my mom being able to see some of the best doctors in the DMV and being able to catch it early. I am grateful for that every day and for the fact she is able to be HERE not only alive, but so healthy living and breathing a vibrant life alongside my sisters, Nicole & Lexi and I, and my amazing supportive father, Peter. 

Certainly, you know someone close to you touched by Breast Cancer - we all do and every time I hear of another diagnosis it breaks my heart. Please help me to support Breast Cancer research so that we can find a CURE in our lifetime. Every donation TRULY counts and your donation goes directly to The Georgetown Lombardi Research, which is a fantastic instituion with commited and smart people working to save lives. Thank you for whatever amount you are able to donate! It means the world to my family and I.

Stronger Together for 7 years and beyond!

With Love, Brit
