Susan G. Komen Art Auction Fundraiser

Hi! I'm Noreen, a design associate at Custom Art Framing. I'm a breast cancer survivor...4 years this May! When I was diagnosed it came as a shock. I took care of my body, ate healthy, exercised and was a working mom. I digested my prognosis, got angry, and channeled that anger into my personal wage against this incidious epidemic. I never wasted my time saying 'why me'. I, instead thought 'why not me'. Cancer doesn't discriminate and it's not very picky. During my treatment I was overwhelmed at the outpouring of support and random acts of kindness. I'm now living my life trying to pay it forward and giving back. I've been an active participant in my town of Mansfield's Relay for Life since 2006 and in 2007 was the key note speaker. This year I've decided to redirect my energy to walk in the Susan G. Komen 3-day for the Cure in July. I'll walk 60 miles over 3 days to raise money, awareness and voices to ultimately end this global disease for good.
We are holding a silent art auction to support my walk at Gallery 9 March 12, 2010. We are looking for art donations. Please contact the gallery @ 781-762-3300 if you're interested. I hope to see you at the silent auction. All of the net proceeds will filter directly through my personal web page to Susan G. Komen. Every penny counted is a penny that counts!
With love, light and eternal hope,
Noreen
