This Saturday, October 29, at 9am, Mathis and I and friends will be the “Dana’s Gladiators” team in the American Cancer Society’s “Making Strides Against Breast Cancer” walk. Rain or shine. I’m honored to be this event’s Survivor Ambassador, as well.
We’ll be walking in memory of my twin sis, Tracy and I miss her so much. That’s the hard part about this walk.We’re also walking to raise dollars for research we so critically need AND for programs that help patients.
Some of you have already donated this year and many donated last year. Wow, thank you so much!

Your money goes right to patient programs and breast cancer research. As an example:
- $100.00 pays for a patient to have one-on-one peer support such as a new chemo patient talking with an experienced one.
- $100.00 pays for 4 patients to access the 24/7 cancer hotline for information and questions.
- $100.00 pays for 10 rides for patients who can’t get a ride to treatment.
- $500.00 secures 5 hotel nights for under-served or remote patients to stay during a surgery or treatment.
For those in Seattle, the walk is free this Saturday and get a limited-edition T-Shirt for Dana’s Gladiators! Register here: http://tiny.cc/DanaStrides
Oh, “no pressure” but I’m the 2nd largest fundraiser so far…and that’s just not good enough, right? Help Dana’s Gladiators get to #1!
With huge hugs and gratitude,
