Atlanta Philanthropic Alert: Komen Atlanta Race for the Cure

DOLLS!!! It's time to be pretty...philanthropic!!!

As the world’s leading breast cancer organization, Susan G. Komen for the Cure® is committed to ending breast cancer forever. On May 8th, 2010 , let's join the thousands of others playing a part in the annual Komen Atlanta Race for the Cure®. It is likely you know someone who has been diagnosed with breast cancer – perhaps you or your spouse, a relative, coworker, neighbor or friend – someone in your life’s circle who has heard the words, “You have breast cancer.” A diagnosis of breast cancer affects more than just the patient. When someone we love is diagnosed, we all are affected. Families work doubly hard to keep homes running smoothly while the patient travels the road of breast cancer treatment. Businesses struggle, not only to support their coworker, but also to fill gaps in productivity. You see, breast cancer doesn’t care – so we have to care!

Dolls, breast cancer research is a cause near and dear to my heart. In 1984, I lost my godmother to the disease. At age 4, I wasn't old enough to understand why I couldn't hug my godmother as I always did. In 1998, my mom's best friend lost her battle with breast cancer. I was older and was able to see the effects of breast cancer and chemotherapy. Currently my step-grandmother is battling breast cancer and she's winning! I walk for Peggy, Meryl and Dominga. Who do you walk for? - Lauren

    Dolls - the pics are just adorably cute. Especially love the one of the gentlemen 'checking' out the Dolls. I know he's just wondering "what is the Black Doll Affair?" ;o) Sorry I wasn't there - my body decided to have other plans and after this week I had to listen b4 it shut down on me! Y'all represented!
