Team Mission Possible was formed in 2004 to honor my mother, Geraldine Kurtz, who was a breast cancer survivor. She died in 2006 at the young age of 62 due to liver complications brought on by the extensive chemotherapy and radiation treatments she had undergone during her fight against breast cancer. As I watched my Mom in her last hours, it enraged me to think that people can survive cancer, but die because of side effects from their treatments. HOW INSANE IS THAT! Over the past 8 years, Team Mission Possible has participated yearly in the Race for Cure and the Breast Cancer 3-Day events in the hopes that one day, no daughter will have to walk or run again!
This team exist for one simple reason: CANCER SUCKS!
We have all registered again this year for the Komen Race for the Cure because we want to make an impact in the fight against breast cancer. Cheryl has been working with Susan G. Komen for the Cure for the past 8 years now and is overwhelmed by all the good they do! Your support helps us get one step closer to a world without breast cancer. 75 percent of the money raised through the Race stays in the community to fund local breast cancer education, screening and treatment programs. The remaining 25 percent supports groundbreaking breast cancer research.
