On April 28, 2007 my sister, Lisa found a lump in her breast. The doctor confirmed it was stage 3b breast cancer (grade 3 tumor). She was only 37 years old. A lumpectomy removed a 5cm tumor. Lisa then began her treatments on June 15, which started with chemotherapy every other Friday for four months followed by radiation. My sister's official remission date is April 4, 2008. I was there from start to finish and am still amazed by her strength and courage to beat it. She does home daycare and only took off the Friday's she had chemotherapy. In August 2008, even though she was only four months into her remission, we decided to take on the Susan G Komen-3 day, 60-mile walk challenge. In order to raise enough money to walk, our charity event, Golf for a Cure was born. We raised $11,000 in the fight against breast cancer! Because of the huge success and the fun we had, we decided to make it an annual event. We work hard each year to ensure our Golf for a Cure brings friends together for the common goal of making a difference in the fight against breast cancer.
