Hakuna Ma Tatas
We walk in memory of Alicia Hunsperger who was lost too soon after a breast cancer diagnosis. After her diagnosis, one of the ways she made meaning was to look at the opportunity to save others. Once she found out it was a genetic mutation she immediately got to work contacting her siblings, her children, anyone who had the possibility of having it passed down. So we have a chance to get tested and start screenings earlier. We walk to carry on her legacy of providing hope and love in what can seem like the darkest of times.
Please join us for Come Walk With Me this October, and help our team support those going through a breast cancer diagnosis or treatment, honor those who have fought breast cancer and won, and remember those who we lost too soon.
