Fundraising Goal $4,000.00

My Message

2020 is my 5th year with the Georgia 2-Day Walk for Breast Cancer, and this year it will be a “virtual walk” because of COVID-19. I know you are receiving many appeals from organizations that help to meet critical needs resulting from COVID-19, which is why I’ve waited to update my appeal. Most people who benefit from funds raised in the Georgia 2-Day Walk for Breast Cancer are Georgians who are particularly impacted by COVID -19 –individuals who had financial hardship before the pandemic – and face even more dire financial challenges because of it. Most cannot afford mammograms or other screenings, or treatment for -- and other expenses associated with – breast cancer. Funds raised by the Georgia 2-Day Walk for Breast Cancer will help meet urgent needs for these people.

In 6 years as a breast cancer survivor, I’ve seen that breast cancer never takes a day off. Also, because two friends were diagnosed with breast cancer in the last 8 months, I have been reminded of how relentless this disease is. I hope you will consider supporting It’s the Journey / the Georgia 2-Day Walk for Breast Cancer in our efforts to fight breast cancer. It’s the Journey has a proud history of supporting breast health and programs that promote early detection through screening, diagnostics, genetic counseling and testing; research; and other supports and services.

The support for screenings is especially important for those who need 3-D mammograms and MRI’s. Until I received Medicare, my specialized screenings cost over $1,000, including the radiologist’s fee. Without the negotiated price I received through my insurance, the cost would have been $10,000. Only the radiologist’s fee went toward my deductible. I needed 2 each year for several years after diagnosis.

I am proud to say It’s the Journey is highly regarded for its efforts to promote breast health and fight breast cancer; we have a four-star rating from Charity Navigator, the highest awarded by this organization. I know that you receive many requests for supporting many wonderful causes, but I hope you will join me in supporting It’s the Journey. Thank you for taking time to consider this request.

Dear Margaret, I am so glad to hear that you are a 6 year survivor of this--as you have said--relentless disease. Your appeal is especially compelling, given your special attention to the costs of screenings. Thank you for your commitment.
