KEEP OUR TREASURE CHESTS!



Dear Family and Friends,

It’s that time again! On July 23-25, 2010, I’ll be walking 60 miles over the course of three days, camping out at night with thousands of other women and men taking this journey with me. I'll be participating in the Breast Cancer 3-Day again, this time my father will be on the crew and my friend Kristina will be walking with me. The net proceeds will support breast cancer research, education, screening and treatment through Susan G. Komen for the Cure and the National Philanthropic Trust Breast Cancer Fund.

Since last year’s walk, I lost another family member to breast cancer. My Mimi died in March 2010. I also learned of a little 10 year old girl in California fighting this horrible disease. She is so young and treatment is tricky, as she is just a child and treatment is different for adults with cancer. The walk was an amazing experience last year. I met survivors, family members, people who were fighting it currently.
I am walking with Kristina as part of Keep Our Treasure Chests! We are walking towards keeping breasts everywhere cancer free! It is my goal to raise $2300. Please consider making a donation of at least $60, a dollar for each mile I will walk. If you feel so inclined, you can donate for each mile while I am training or more than $1 a mile I will walk in July. If you can’t give this amount all at once, you can spread it out over a few months, using the payment plan option, if you donate online at http://www.the3day.org/.

To make a donation, go to www.tarshastreasurechest.blogspot.com. Click on the 3-Day logo at the top of the page. It will bring you to my personal fundraising page. If you don’t want to donate online, you can send a check to me at 496 Cross Street, Boylston, MA 01505. Or you can call 800.996.3DAY to donate over the phone. I would like to reach my fundraising goal by July 19, 2010, so don’t delay!

Without a cure, one in eight women in the U.S. will continue to be diagnosed with breast cancer. That’s why I’m walking in the 3-Day, because everyone deserves a lifetime. Thank you for taking the time to read this letter, and thank you for your support!

Tarsha
P.S. I will be journaling on my blog again this year!
