Here’s Tamsen’s story:

“I am participating in AVON 39 The Walk to End Breast Cancer. It won’t be easy, but that’s why it’s worth it. From now until AVON 39 weekend, I’ll train to strengthen my body to walk over 39 miles in two days. I’ll also be raising funds to crush breast cancer.

This is where you come in.

As so many of you know, I lost my mother to breast cancer when I was young. She was my best friend. I believe she looks down on my everyday and gives me my strength to deal with anything no matter how big or small.

My hope is that one day we will be walking to celebrate the end of breast cancer. But, until then, it is my passion and my mission to do all that I can to help fight this disease in any way that I can.

I’m walking with thousands of other 39ers. We’re banding together in solidarity and have one goal: to take breast cancer down. So many sisters and mothers and friends have been lost. We see a world without breast cancer for our daughters and nieces. AVON 39 is a force of change that can’t be stopped.

Sincerely,

Tamsen Fadal
