In January 2010, my mother lost her decade-long fight with breast cancer. She was 59 years old. To honor her fighting spirit, I have pledged to participate in the Susan G. Komen Seattle 3-Day for the Cure. This means that in September, I will be walking 60 miles (100 km) over the course of three days, alongside some of the women who loved my mom the most. As a team we will be raising nearly $10,000 and 100% of the net proceeds will go towards global breast cancer research and community-based breast health programs.
