Welcome to Race for the Cure Helen Juniper
About a year ago now, when I went to pick up my children from my parents after school, I was greeted at the door by my father who told me he needed to speak to me. My father, who is always one for dramatics. I asumed nothing was horribly wrong until I saw my mother's face. She told me she had found a lump in her breast. This is when time stood still for me. The next few months were a blur of going to every doctor's visit I could with her to give her support, from her initial consulltation to when they wheeled her in to have the lump removed. I wasn't there for all with my teaching schedule, but I was there for all I could. When she got the lab results back and they told her all was good, I was so greatful. I felt so blessed. I have never felt so scared that I could possibly lose my mother. This horrible cancer has claimed the life of my husband's mother and could have claimed the life of my mother.
This year, I want to make an impact in the fight against breast cancer! I want to help Susan G. Komen save lives and end breast cancer forever. I’m taking my first step towards a world without breast cancer by raising funds to stop this disease that affects 1 in 8 women during their lifetime. As the world’s largest and most impactful breast cancer organization, Susan G. Komen funds more breast cancer research than any other nonprofit, while providing real-time help to those facing the disease.
