Jamie's Story ///
My personal experience with a breast cancer scare was life changing. I was extremely lucky to find my lump through early detection. Since then, I have drastically changed the way I eat and how I care for my body. There are typically three things that lead to disease: poor genetics, environmental issues or an unhealthy lifestyle. There is really only one of those that you can control, so my message is to be proactive and take care of your body. For those who unfortunately fall ill, organizations like Race for the Cure not only offer education and medical support but a community of people ready to fight your battles with you every step of the way.
The Komen Race for the Cure is a unique event, designed to promote positive awareness, education and early detection of breast cancer. It has proved to be an enormously effective way to reach many women and men with the message that breast cancer is not necessarily fatal if mammography and breast self-exam become routine. As well as being a road race for runners, the Komen Race for the Cure is an emotionally charged event that attracts many first timers and recreational runners. This is an opportunity for thousands of women, men and their families, running or walking, to spread the breast cancer message.
