I have been as supporter of the Komen organization for a number of years, as I know several breast cancer survivors. Even though I am not able to run/walk (due to other health issues), I always support my friends with a donation when they run/walk. This is an important organization and I am always inspired by the stories of some of the women and how strong these women are. I hope that there will be less and less women who have to deal with this disease as we move forward in the fight for a cure.
