Dear Family & Friends,

Please join me in supporting a great cause, which has impacted my family on a personal level. Both my grandmother and my beloved great-grandmother have fought the battle against breast cancer. My Grandmother, Julia, was diagnosed shortly before I was born. Luckily, she continues to be a breast cancer survivor to this day. My grandmother is also the person I'm named after and such a special person in my life. My Grandmother is always supportive of everything I do! I would like to help raise funds and support this cause in honor of her hard fought battle. For every donation, I am offering to make one of my custom  string bracelets too! You can choose from many colors and patterns! 

Being a part of "The Lax for the Cure" fundraiser event with my STEPS Elite team is about raising funds and awareness at the same time. The tournament, myself, my team, and Susan G. Komen are working together to help others like my Grandmother and those who are battle against breast cancer right now. Not only is this cause very close to my heart, it also helps so many of many others! Myself and my STEPS Elite Team will join many, many lacrosse players, from teams from all over the country, to raise funds and awareness, while competing in "The Lax For The Cure" tournament this November. I think that's pretty awesome and I feel lucky to do this!

My goal is to raise at least $100 and Please consider donating any amount at all! I learned a donation of $40 will cover the cost of transportation for a patient traveling to and from the hospital for treatment. I also learned a donation of $100 helps cover the cost of one ultrasound. If you kindly decide to donate, you can give ANY AMOUNT! Every donation helps! I greatly appreciate you taking the time to check-out my page and learn a more about why I am participating in this fundraiser. Thank you in advance for your consideration and support!

Sincerely,

Julia

Your breast health…
The greatest risk factors for breast cancer are being female and growing older.  Breast cancer knows no boundary, be it age, gender, socio-economic status or geographic location.  One in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime. That's one in eight within your company, school and organization!

The key to survival is early detection.  Three simple steps for early detection are regular mammograms, clinical exams and breast self-exams. And, remember, breast cancer affects more than just the patient; friends and family need support too.

What does Komen do?
For more than 25 years, Komen for the Cure has played a critical role in every major advance in the fight against breast cancer – transforming how the world talks about and treats this disease, and helping to turn millions of breast cancer patients into breast cancer survivors.

Over the next 25 years, an estimated 25 million women around the world will be diagnosed with breast cancer if we don't find a cure.  Komen will not stop until we discover and deliver the cures. That's our promise.

We Will Find the Cure!
