Susan G Komen 3 Day Inspiration - Stacey Malis

I have taken on an incredible challenge. On Nov. 19-21, I'll be walking 60 miles over the course of three days, camping out at night with thousands of other women and men taking this journey with me.

A couple years ago my sister Stacey, was diagnosed with breast cancer. She’s been through countless chemotherapy and radiation sessions, and a big surgery and has never stopped fighting or lost hope. Through everything she’s remained my mentor and friend and guided me through all my major life decisions from having a baby to getting married. Growing up she was the one who always gave the best Christmas presents, potty-trained me, and took me to all the best theme parks. Stacey has been more than a sister to me. She’s been my friend, my role model, and teacher. She is currently in Phase 4 and just started going to City of Hope last month. I would do anything to make her life easier. One in eight women in the U.S. will be diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime. That's why I'm walking in the 3-Day for the Cure. Because everyone deserves a lifetime.
It's for an event called the Susan G. Komen 3-Day for the Cure. Net proceeds from the Komen 3-Day for the Cure are invested in breast cancer research and community programs. Komen for the Cure® works hard to build a future without breast cancer, and I have pledged to raise $2,300 to help bring us closer to that goal.
