HELP SAVE LIVES IN SOUTHEAST TEXAS!
I’m lacing up to save lives by participating in the 3rd Annual Julie Rogers “Gift of Life” Program 5K Ribbon Run/Walk on Saturday, October 5 in Downtown Beaumont. Proceeds benefit the “Gift of Life” regional cancer awareness initiatives for breast, ovarian and other gynecological cancers. For more information about the “Gift of Life,” visit www.giftoflifebmt.org.
As you all know, this is personal to me. Having lost my mother to breast cancer in 1990, having an aunt diagnosed and survive the disease since 1997 and having had breast cancer myself, diagnosed in 2006 and survive. Also, our team member Alberta Jones is a throat cancer survivor, along with breast cancer survivors Schalanda Berry and Stephanie Semien. So kudos to myself, my aunt, Alberta, Schalanda and Stephanie for surviving. This walk will be in memory of my mother and to the memory of all our family, friends and loved ones we have lost along the way to this dreaded disease.
