OSF Beverly Breast Cancer Virtual Walk 2020
OSF Beverly Breast Cancer Walk is celebrating 21 years of service to the community, and we couldn’t be more excited! The outpouring of generosity from the OSF-BBCVW community is amazing and we thank you for your unwavering support and generosity.
Traditionally this walk has been held at Ridge Park on Mother’s Day. This year, because of the coronavirus pandemic, OSF HealthCare will instead host a virtual walk on Sunday, May 10th. The virtual walk is a fun, interactive way to get up and move safely during the coronavirus pandemic while still honoring and supporting our friends, family and all those who have or are currently facing the fight against breast cancer.
Dear Family & Friends:
Yes, I am doing it again, but a little different this year. David and I will be doing our own walk while practicing social distancing. I signed up to walk the 5K for the 2020 Breast Cancer Walk, which will be held on Mother's Day, Sunday, May 10th. I had such an incredible experience last year that I am going back for more. I am so excited about this event, even though I now know what I have gotten myself into.
Many of you have asked about my friend, Zaida. I am happy to report that she is doing fantastic. The one thing I have come away with is that this disease isn’t cured by a shot. Zaida's treatment was 2 ½ years long.
So, I will be walking 3 miles to help women realize that as long as you have breasts you are a candidate for breast cancer. EVERYONE is at risk.
I am walking because right now there are over 1,000,000 women in the United States with undetected breast cancer and 70% of those women (like my friend) have absolutely no risk factors for breast cancer. They don’t even know they should be checking.
I need your help. I am asking for your support.
The money raised will go towards non-profit breast health programs, state of the art medical research and to provide support for women in the United States who don’t have insurance.
Whichever method you choose, I hope that you will choose to share this incredible experience with me. Those that donate online will receive an e-mail confirmation that can be used for tax purposes. If you donate by check, your cancelled check is your proof of donation.
Thank you so much for your support and generosity.
