Monica’s Mamo Mamas

Hello Everyone,

I have a great friend who is doing the Susan G. Komen 3-day walk in San Francisco. She has named her team after me and has set a goal to raise $10,000. It quite an ambitious and admirable goal, and I’d like to do anything I can to help her.

Please consider joining her by supporting her in her walk. The following is from her website:

“Here I am again, preparing mind, body and checkbook for another 60 mile walk for breast cancer awareness. If you are visiting my site, you must be somewhat aware of what has brought me to this place. I wish my passion could come from a place less personal than my one, but sometimes it takes the unexpected to motivate us.
“Back in 2006, I wrote about our mother’s best friend Nancy Rach, who fought and lost her battle with breast cancer and how her struggles inspired me to take the first steps of a very long journey. I am sad to say that this year, 2007, has brought breast cancer close to home again as our good family friend, Monica Rodriguez, was diagnosed with a very aggressive form of breast cancer at only age 31. My sister and I debated about walking again this year, but after Monica was diagnosed we knew we had to do it. I am happy to say that Monica is doing well in her treatments and, God willing, she will be cancer free by the time we actually do this walk. For now, we begin the training, fundraising and spreading of information to eradicate breast cancer as a fear for women and men alike.
“So, I ask that you please support me as I take another amazing journey in the fight against breast cancer! The Breast Cancer 3-Day is a 60-mile walk over the course of three days. Net proceeds benefit Susan G. Komen for the Cure and National Philanthropic Trust, funding important breast cancer research, education, screening, and treatment.
“For those who have fought and won or fought and lost, thank you for your support.”

Here is the link to her website if you are interested in reading her blog, donating to the cause, or finding out more about Monica’s Mamo Mamas. Please take the time to donate what you can. Breast cancer has affected so many and will continue to do so until there is a cure!

Thank you and I’ll keep you updated as to her progress.

You go, Sheri!

    Thanks for the support, Monica! You’re awesome. I just got a donation last night and I thought it was from a coworker because I hadn’t checked your site, but I bet it was from someone you know. I’m glad to hear that everything is going so well for you and Sol, too. Sorry I haven’t posted much recently. Our lives have been so hectic. I am graduating tonight and we are buying a house – did I tell you that? Even though I’m not posting, know that you are in my prayers daily. Hopefully we’ll be able to get together before too long. Thanks again for your support!

    🙂 Sheri
