Friends and Family far and near,
Will you support Melissa's Minions 2016 Komen Team this year? No donation is too small and the best thing is you don't even have to get out of bed. So you ask: Why Komen-why race? We are all SOOOOO busy right?
Why, I could tell you Komen agrees that 1 in 8 in not acceptable. Or I could tell you that Komen Dollars have played a significant role in lowering the death rate. Want proof? Ask the more than 3.1 million survivors - go ahead, ask ME! I could say that it's because in 1980 the 5 year survival rate was about 74% and today's five year survival rate is 99%. I could tell you that the advancements made in breast cancer research have contributed to better treatment of other types of cancers. All good reasons right?
Because of fundraising efforts like this, myself and the other 3M+ survivors get the opportunity to have a quality of life and get the privilege to be just "too" busy!
Thank you on behalf of all women and men (past, present and future) faced with this disease. Thank you for honoring those lost we have lost and supporting those who are currently fighting the battle (A BIG shout out to my sweet friend Amy who is a FIGHTER) by fundraising and supporting our team in this years race.
Donate now or sign up to race! Let's show our MIGHTY MINION SUPPORT!
