My Name is Gail Thompson and I am a 10-year breast cancer survivor!! I was diagnosed at Stage 0 and I am a firm believer that early detection is the key! Early detection will improve chances that the cancer can be treated successfully and therefore, save lives.
Four years ago, I was also diagnosed with Mantle Cell Lymphoma (MCL), a very rare form, so I am twice as determined to raise funds that will help find a cure for breast cancer and other types of cancer too.
What am I doing?
I'm walking to support the Central Virginia Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure because I want to make a difference in the fight against breast cancer. Please help me reach my fundraising goal by making a tax-deductible donation today.

Your breast health…
The greatest risk factors for breast cancer are being female and growing older. Breast cancer knows no boundary, be it age, gender, socio-economic status or geographic location. One in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime. That's one in eight within your company, school and organization!
The key to survival is early detection. Two simple steps for early detection are regular mammograms and clinical breast exams. And, remember, breast cancer affects more than just the patient; friends and family need support, too.
What does Komen do?
For more than 30 years, Komen for the Cure has played a critical role in every major advance in the fight against breast cancer – transforming how the world talks about and treats this disease and helping to turn millions of breast cancer patients into breast cancer survivors.
Over the next 25 years, an estimated 25 million women around the world will be diagnosed with breast cancer if we don't find a cure. Komen will not stop until we discover and deliver the cures. That's our promise.
We Will Find the Cure!
Please consider making a donation for the cause. Thanks for your support!
