Lesa Lives For A Cure

Smithton, IL Campaign 26718

Non Profits & Charities - Campaign

I had just started a new job and then moved into my new home. 3 days after moving, on January 22, 2014 I was diagnosed with Breast Cancer. I felt like my life was just taken from me. I was frightened but I knew I had to do whatever it took to fight through this. I was too young and had my husband and 3 children to think about. 3 weeks later I had surgery and 4 weeks after that I went through 34 days of radiation. Working every single day (except Saturday & Sunday), I went to treatment on my lunch hour and returned to work afterwards. I wasn't going to let this get the best of me. Through the summer I started building my energy back up and was feeling really good. Then came September 2014, a dear co-worker, who was one of my biggest supporters was also diagnosed with Breast Cancer. How does this happen! It tore me apart to see someone else have to go through what I did. With this, I decided I not only wanted to give back because of all those who had helped me emotionally and physically, but I knew I needed to do something to help bring awareness for early detection and to fundraise to assist with research to help find a cure. I contacted Making Strides Against Breast Cancer St. Louis with the American Cancer Society and I formed a team to walk in our local Making Strides event. I'm asking you to assist me in my fight to find a cure and/or prevention of breast cancer and to bring awareness to this horrible disease. It's very easy, from anywhere Schwans delivers in the US just place an order and 20% of your product purchase and 40% of a gift card purchase will be donated to my team. It's as simple as that and your order will be delivered right to your door. Won't you please help my team in the fight against Breast Cancer during our Making Strides Walk! Thank you from the bottom of my heart!
