C is for Cookie, Cancer, and Cure

“C is for Cookie”, and that’s good enough for me.

I think we all could agree with Cookie Monster. Let’s just stop there.

But sometimes it does not work out that way.

C is for Cancer

This year, the “big C” hit home pretty hard. Erika endured 18 weeks of chemotherapy after a bilateral mastectomy, and we’re looking forward to more surgery in November. And we count ourselves lucky. Erika knew what she was looking for, and she knew how serious it could be—her sister Inga died of breast cancer in 2000. So we moved quickly to fight the C monster.

Now, we’re joining thousands to Race for the Cure in just a couple of weeks. We’re raising money for the Denver Metropolitan Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure (I’ll just call them ‘Komen’).

C is for Cure

Komen has developed a fantastic model to raise funds to fight cancer on many fronts.

One important part of the Komen model is keeping it local – 75% of the net income we raise from our Race stays in the Denver Metropolitan Affiliate’s 12 county service area to fund breast health education, breast cancer screening and treatment projects.

The remaining 25% of the net income raised from our Race goes to fund national breast cancer research programs.

We would love to have your support.
