Making Strides Against Breast Cancer 2015

It's October and it's time for another Making Strides against Breast Cancer :).

we are ready ..are you ready to join us?

Remember last year when I joined Making Strides against Breast Cancer during my chemo?

I was still struggling last year :)

Joining the noble cause on the fight against breast cancer...
I have shared it in my blog as well, Making Strides against Breast Cancer, the D-Day  :).

And this year, I will definitely join thousands of survivors, volunteers and anyone whose life have been impacted by cancer on the same fight.


Making Strides against Breast Cancer walk in Central Park, NYC, 
Sunday, 18 October 2015
Central Park, 72nd Street East, Bandshell 

If last year I was a bit down with chemo, this year I was much more energized and get readier, including with the fundraising activities.

this is my dashboard, with Indonesia Ceria & Beyond as my team....

I managed to order some customized merchandises as well to support my campaign this year, including this tenun endek Bali pouch adorned with the pink ribbon logo.

if you are interested, give me a shout's USD 15 each :) 

The proceed will be donated to Making Strides against Breast Cancer for sure.
Up until now, with the help of many dearest friends and family, I have gathered USD 885 so far :)

If you want to join the walk or contribute, please check it out HERE as the whole month of october will be dedicated to intensify our efforts in our joint efforts to fight breast cancer :).

And do you you wanna know why I am making this strides?

Because I want to have more birthdays...and see my kids grow up :).
I want to see Bo et Obi's children, my grandchildren.
I want to grow old with Rudi, my munchkin :)
The same dreams that I also share with all women who have to fight breast cancer...

I know I will make a difference in the fight to end breast cancer through some real actions. I believe that by raising funds and walking in the American Cancer Society Making Strides Against Breast Cancer event, I will help save lives from breast cancer. As a person diagnosed with breast cancer myself, I can't help but joining this noble cause for all women who face the same cancer. 

We have the same fear, but we don't have to fight it alone!

I sincerely hope and believe that one day breast cancer will never steal another year from anyone's life. Making Strides is not only my opportunity to join my community to fight back against breast cancer, but it is also a way to inspire hope by raising funds and awareness to help those facing the disease. That's why I'm walking. 

My reason for walking in the Making Strides event is probably personal – just like every other walker’s story. 

We all walk because we’ve been affected by breast cancer in some way, and because the Making Strides event gives us the power to make a difference and fight back. 

This is my opportunity to honor breast cancer survivors, to remind myself to stay strong and feeling blessed.
It's the perfect time to remember people we have lost, and help raise funds for groundbreaking research, information and services for people fighting breast cancer, and mammograms for women who need them.

Why I Support the American Cancer Society

Every day, the American Cancer Society helps people take steps to reduce their risk of breast cancer or find it early when it is easiest to treat. Today 1 of every 2 women newly diagnosed with breast cancer reaches out to them for help and support. They provide free information and services when and where women need it throughout their journey to get well. They are investing in groundbreaking research to find, prevent, treat, and cure breast cancer, and are working to ensure access to mammograms for women who need them. 

I have signed up to walk and fundraise with Making Strides Against Breast Cancer. I hope you will consider joining my team and/or making a donation in support of my efforts. 

Together, we can make strides to end breast cancer!

Don't forget to participate in my Giveaways and win cool merchandises, including from American Cancer Society. Check it out here :)
