You Make The Difference!

Lindsay Gafford

Welcome (and welcome back), Everyone!

This September I will ride in my 3rd Tour de Pink! I can't believe it.

My first year was all about surviving 200+ miles.
My second year was about forming a team.
In my third year, I would like to continue the momentum that I started.

To honor the friends we've lost in the last year, I want to raise $15,000 -
the most money I've ever raised for this ride. We will fund programs that support young women with breast cancer when they need it most. It might be a lofty goal, but I think we can do it.

For those of you who don't know, I am one of the 'Young Survivors'. I am in treatment for Metastatic Breast Cancer, also known as Stage IV. To say that I have benefited from the programs that YSC offers would be an understatement. I have met some phenomenal women through their support groups and conferences, and I have also lost friends along the way. It's a cruel disease, but I try to stay busy living the best life that I can.

Believe it or not, participating in this ride is a form of therapy for me, but to do it I will need your support! When you're considering your donation to myself or my team, please know that these dollars help fund programs that I particpate in. Things like my monthly online support group meeting, local Face2Face support groups, and conferences where I can network with other survivors and gather important information.

How will your donation help?

$25 could fund YSC materials at three healthcare providers’ offices.
$100 could provide a Newly Diagnosed Navigator to six women when they need it most.
$250 could allow us to train four survivors to serve as a peer supporters.
$500 could fund a Young Empowered Survivor (YES) educational program.
$1,200 could pay for two young women to travel to the YSC Summit, an annual conference for young women affected by breast cancer and their co-survivors.

I truely believe that any amount helps! Thank you in advance for your support.
