Welcome to My Fundraising Page!
I started running 14 years ago in honor of my beautiful big sister. Sister Ebob would have been turning 61 on September 30th.
She was a beloved mother, sister and partner, and woiuld have been a grandmother to 4, welcoming her
first grandson this year.
Team Ebob during its tenure has raised over $30,000.
Three years ago (2017), led by Kethy S-k, and other friends and family - Team Uber-Bride was born. Over the last two years Team Uber-Bride has raised close to $10,000.
We pivoted last year and started Team JB's daughter, joining a collective that is raising awareness of metastatic breast cancer (MBC), to raise the ever so needed funds to support MBC research. Last year JB's Daughters raised a little under $2000 and we are maintaing a similar goal this year.
Early detection saves life - is a cute slogan but doesnt tell the whole story. 20 - 30% of women diagnosed with breast cancer will
suffer a recurrence. No amount of positivy can change this fact. We need to act, supporting more research to find out which kinds of cancers are more prone to metastasize. We need better quicker access to cutting edge drugs for stage 4. We need more diligent follow-up for ALL women who have had breast cancer. We need a more accurate depiction of Stage IV mortality and prognosis . Currently, if you are initially diagnosed with Stage II and much later progress to Stage IV you are not counted in the Breast Cancer Mortality Statistics - which is why breast cancer statistics are skewed and appear more positive than they actually are.
We need medication with more tolerable side effects, which allow you to sleep through the night with minimal pain and no hot flashes waking you up every 30 mins! We need. minimally invasive surgeries that do not limit your ability to pick up your kids or carry groceries. We also need improved precision for surgeries, to limit the overall number of surgeries that women diagnosed with breast cancer have to go through.
Our team this year JB's Daugthers is a tribute to all my sisters - for their fortitude, for their courage, for their faith and their strength in times of adversity. All the funds raised by my team this year will go towards Metastatic Breast Cancer Research. Please donate, share or join us on October 4th to change the conversation around Breast Cancer.
