First Place Breast Cancer Awareness Story: Valentina Escobar Gonzales
I have been wanting to participate in the Komen for the Cure walk for a while but in Tampa it was 3 day walk. Since I moved to TN a month ago, I noticed a sign for a 5K Walk. I have signed up and I have raised $100 so far. I’m buying the Yoplait yogurts with the pink tops, paper towels, foods that will donate Komen for the Cure. I don’t know anyone in family that has had breast cancer. I’m supporting this because I believe they are very close to a cure, we just need to buy more pink items to get closer to that goal. I meet someone this weekend that thanked me for my support (since I was wearing my pink ribbon) and she is undergoing treatment. She’s the first person I have meet that has been affected by this disease.”
