Racing toward a cure for breast cancer
By Sheryl M. Ness, R.N.
For 20 years, the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure has hosted an event in Phoenix to raise money to fight breast cancer (www.komenphoenix.org). Come visit the Mayo Clinic booth Sunday, Oct. 14, at the Komen Race for the Cure event in downtown Phoenix.
In Rochester, Minn., the Join the Journey annual breast cancer awareness walk takes place on Sunday, Sept. 16 (www.jointhejourney.us)
Jacksonville, Fla., hosts the annual 26.2 with Donna race on Feb. 17, 2013 (www.breastcancermarathon.com).
Members of Mayo Clinic's Breast Clinic, physicians, cancer educators and clinical trials staff will be on hand to answer your questions and cheer you on as you walk/run to raise awareness for breast cancer. We look forward to these events every year. It gives us a chance to show our passion and support for our patients and community.
Events such as these help provide a sense of doing something, moving forward with a real connection to others who have the same desire and drive to make a difference. We are all touched by cancer in some way during our lives — that's why it's so important to talk, run, walk and be inspired, showing support in every way possible.blog index
