From the time I first heard of TBBCF and volunteered for the walk, I was immediately impressed by the passion of the walkers and volunteers. That is when I also decided I wanted to help by being a sponsor as well. I could hardly believe it when I first heard that one in eight women will develop breast cancer over their lifetime. That has really stuck with me.
Another part of the appeal is that 100 percent of fundraising dollars goes to grants for researchers who are looking for a cure and better ways to treat the disease. I call that the “special sauce” of the foundation.
