Carol Levow 

Hello Friends,

This is a first for me. I’ve donated a lot of money to a variety of good causes but never had a more personal reason to actually fundraise myself.

On November 19, 2016 I was diagnosed with stage 2 invasive ductal carcinoma breast cancer. Obviously it was a shock! The diagnosis propelled me into an 8-week crash course. Researching the, most often, overwhelming and confusing choices that lay ahead of me. I had no idea how difficult finding the right treatment could be. After interviewing two medical teams; surgeon, oncologist, and radiologist, conferring with alternative specialist, reading enormous amounts of data and talking with friends that had been through this, I was finally able to make a surgery / radiation plan. Which actually relieved some of my anxiety. I chose a fairly new procedure called IORT. I only mention this because there are many personal choices one have to make when facing this disease.

The awesome love and support I received over those anxiety ridden 5 months was amazing. Every card, voice mail and hug kept me going. With the connection of loved ones and community, great surgeon, radiologist and oncologist, I am now 4 months post surgery. I’m back riding my bike, hiking, working and enjoying, at least for now, living in my cancer free body.

So here’s my ask:
I’ve registered for a 200-mile fundraising bike ride, sponsored by YSC Tour de Pink. I want to help further the needed research for this insidious disease and find ways to help other women navigate this difficult journey. My goal is to raise at least $5000.00, which would be $25.00 a mile. Your donation will profoundly help millions of women!

I want to thank you ahead of time with deep gratitude and great appreciation for any support you may want to donate.
