2019 Race for the Cure Registration Now Open!

By, Paula Schneider

First my mom, then me. But hopefully not my daughters.

I have treasured every moment of watching my two daughters grow into the incredible people they are today. I wouldn’t trade anything for the laughs, tears, late nights helping with homework, first dates and heartbreaks.

My mother lost her battle to metastatic breast cancer, so I know how precious each moment is. I, like any mother, would do anything to help my daughters and protect them.

When I was diagnosed with breast cancer, the hardest part was learning to let go. I was so used to being everyone’s rock and problem solver, that I never put myself first. Breast cancer forced me to put my health first, and allow my family to build me up as I always did for them. It was my family’s love and support that pulled me through my darkest hours.

With your support, we can give mothers the resources they need to finally put themselves first.

In honor of Mother’s Day, sign up for our 2019 Race for the Cure. Registration is OPEN! Sign up by May 13th for the lowest prices of the year.
