THANKS
Firstly, my heart felt thanks go out to all who have donated to our Making Strides Against Breast Cancer campaign thus far. Without your dollars, we wouldn't be able to help people get well, stay well, find cures and fight back against breast cancer, here in our community and across the country. At the American Cancer Society, we are dedicated to providing education, advocacy, research and patient services, at no cost to anyone who needs our help, and your dollars ensure that we continue this important work.

PROGRESS
Our committee of 20 women, (mostly cancer survivors or those closely impacted by the disease) have been working hard to plan our May event. We're adding many elements to our walk this year, making it more than just a walk-it's an event! We'll have children's activities, vendors selling various wares, delicious food, tasty beverages, and many messages scattered throughout the event of how to keep yourself, your neighbor, your sister, your friends; safe from breast cancer, and how to fight back for those battling, or those we've lost.

FASHION SHOW
We held our 4th annual Breast Cancer Fashion Show, show casing models, designers and shop owners who have been impacted by breast cancer. At this event, we raised $4000 to continue our fight against cancer! Maybe we'll see you there next year!  (See Fashion Show  Picture)

From the bottom of our hearts, thank you for your generosity so far, and in the future. Please know that when you donate to the American Cancer Society and Making Strides Against Breast Cancer, your dollars truly make a difference.

If you would like more information on this year's event, please visit our website at portlandstrides.org.

Happy New Year from our family to yours!
