2010love walks for Breast Cancer

September 1, 2010

Breast cancer incidence in women in the United States is 1 in 8 (about 13%).

In 2009, an estimated 192,370 new cases of invasive breast cancer were expected to be diagnosed in women in the U.S., along with 62,280 new cases of non-invasive breast cancer.

Besides skin cancer, breast cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer among U.S. women. More than 1 in 4 cancers are breast cancer.

Breast cancer, of course, affects us all: friends, mothers, sisters, daughters, wives… which is why continuing research and support for a cure is a necessity.
Kristin, of Yorkshire, Ohio shares our 2010love sentiment which is why she decided to wear the PINK 2010love tee during her Susan G. Komen 3-Day for a Cure Walk in Cleveland, Ohio. (10% of proceeds from 2010love PINK limited edition shirts go to Susan G. Komen for the Cure)

Kristin says she is blessed to have not been walking for anyone in particular, but “just had been really wanting to be part of the cause for a couple of years and now was the right time.” Pretty admirable, right?

The Susan G. Komen 3-Day for a Cure Walk consists of 60 miles of walking over the course of 3 days. Contributions “fund innovative global breast cancer research and local community programs supporting education, screening and treatment. Every major advance in the fight against breast cancer in the last 28 years has been impacted by a Susan G. Komen for the Cure grant.” (Susan G. Komen, FAQ) The walk takes place in cities like Chicago, Boston, DC, Atlanta, San Diego, Cleveland, Seattle and more. Registration for 2010 and 2011 is available here.

Thanks Kristin for your support, amazing effort and the great photo! May you be an inspiration to us all…
