Welcome to Team Brenda's Komen Houston Race for the Cure® team page!
This fall my family and I will be participating in the Komen Houston Race for the Cure®. It is an especially important event to me because I am a breast cancer survivor. I was diagnosed with stage 3 breast cancer in November of 2015 after my first routine mammogram. I underwent 6 months of chemo, a mastectomy, 5 weeks of radiation, and just had my final reconstruction surgery 6 months ago. At this time I have been cancer free for 15 months, but the fear of recurrence still haunts me daily. I'm trying to live my life with joy and hope, but breast cancer is a formidable beast and it is claiming more lives daily. I'm participating in this event for all the other wives, mothers, daughters, sisters, and friends.
My sister and her kids are coming from Colorado, and my mom is coming from North Dakota. Come particpate in the 1/2 mile family walk with us on Saturday, October 7th at 8:25am in Downtown Houston. We'd love for you to join our team!
Can't walk with us that day... we'd love your monetary donation to help fund this cause.
Let's go, Team Brenda!!!!!
