In Loving Memory of Melissa Bouffard – Support Me in Race for The Cure

In Loving Memory of Melissa Bouffard

Hello Everyone,

I recently accepted the challenge to raise funds to support the Komen Pittsburgh Race for the Cure® on May 11, 2008 in the fight against breast cancer. One in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime and the more we raise, the more the Komen Pittsburgh Affiliate of the Susan G. Komen for the Cure can give back to fund vital breast cancer education, screening and treatment programs in our own community and support the national search for a cure.

My personal site –


Please join me in the fight by pledging in support of my participation in the Race or contributing generously to the Komen Pittsburgh Race for the Cure®. Your tax-deductible contribution will fund innovative outreach and awareness programs for medically underserved communities in Komen Pittsburgh and national breast cancer research. It is faster and easier than ever to support this great cause – you can make a donation online by simply clicking on the link at the bottom of this message. If you would prefer, you can also send your tax-deductible contribution to the address listed below. Whatever you can give will help! I truly appreciate your support and will keep you posted on my progress.

The reason I am partipicating in this race is because I am doing this for my cousin and other family members and friends who have died from it or survived. Thank you so much for your time and support in the fight against breast cancer! Every step counts!

    This is what is needed more awareness campaigns. Breast cancer is a disease that is commonly overlooked as an unimportant issue in many young and old women who are feared to do a self breast examination for fear they mind find a lump. Let fear prevail because it just may well save your life.
