Why Support BCRF?

The Breast Cancer Research Foundation advances the world’s most promising research to eradicate breast cancer in our lifetime. By spending 91 cents of every dollar on research and public awareness, BCRF remains one of the nation’s most fiscally responsible charities. We currently support more than 200 researchers around the globe who are dedicated to six critical areas of focus—tumor biology, heredity & ethnicity, treatment, survivorship and metastasis—ensuring we learn more about breast cancer at every stage.


Your support funds so many of the world’s brightest minds and brings hope to the thousands of patients, survivors and families affected by the disease. We couldn’t do it without you, and we won’t stop until we achieve prevention and a cure for breast cancer.

My name is Julie Desloge. In February of 2008, I was diagnosed with Triple Negative breast cancer. Today, I am in my tenth year of survivorship. To celebrate ten years being cancer free, I am going to toe the line of Ironman Texas in attempt to finish my first full distance Ironman( 2.4 mile swim, a 112 mile bike ride and a 26.2 mile run under 17 hours). Along the way, I hope to raise money to support the brilliant men and women who do research and testing so that people like me have a chance to live life to its fullest.

I made the above video after my cancer treatment was completed as a way to thank the women who supported me and helped my family get through the trial of that time. Today, this video is a representation of the statistics of breast cancer. 1 in 8 women are diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime in the United States. 8 women in that video have had breast cancer or died from it. I am racing for them and for all the women and men who have been or will be diagnosed. I chose BCRF because it helps directly the people who are at the grassroots of figuring out this complicated disease and finding ways to treat it.

As I spend the next year training for the race to take place on April 28, 2018, I will keep a weekly  blog to update my training, show what the tenth year of survivorship is like, spotlight people who have helped me along the way, and hopefully spread a little hope too. Please visit my blog at https://itriforyou.wordpress.com. One of my hopes is that if you are donating in honor or in memory of a loved one, or if you are a survivor, that you will leave a comment on this page or on the blog and tell me the story. I want to know who those loved ones are so that their lives are honored. If you are on Twitter, leave a photo of them at #itriforyou.  As my pledge to you, I will carry the names throughout the entire race and across the finish line. It will be my motivation throughout the dark days of training, and the rough times during the race.

Please, make a donation today so that more women (and men) like me will have a chance to thrive at life through receiving the best treatment available because the funding for researchers to do their best work was there.

 

Thank you,

Julie
