In 2010 and 2011, Mama J walked in the Susan G Komen 3 Day for the Cure Breast Cancer Walk in San Francisco. She was inspired to walk in honor of her friend Maria, who was diagnosed with breast cancer at the young age of 38, and by a kitty named Tallulah, who died from breast cancer in 2009.
In 2013, I was diagnosed with feline breast cancer and Mama J walked in her first Avon 39. In 2014 and 2015, she walked the Avon 39 with a team of animal loving friends in San Francisco and New York, respectively.
In 2016, the team walked in Chicago and showed Mama J and me a great honor by re-naming the team "Sugar's Trekkers for Ta-Tas".
Now, Mama J walks in memory of me and all whose breast cancer battle is over.
She walks in support of the brave warriors who are still fighting.
She walks to raise awareness that pets get breast cancer too.
On September 9 & 10, 2017, in Santa Barbara, Mama J will again have the honor of walking 39.3 miles over two days with her team, "Sugar's Trekkers for Ta-Tas". Each team member walks for their own reasons, but they are united by one cause: ending breast cancer for everyone. If you would like to support Mama J or her team with a donation, please click here.
Thank you "Sugar's Trekkers for Ta-Tas" for walking and for raising awareness that Pets Get Breast Cancer Too.
