We walk in remembrance of Tamarra Ann Christian, who was young, beautiful, vibrant, full of life, and never met a stranger. November 12, 2008, stage four-breast cancer took her from us. Leaving behind three children and a family that admires and adored her.
Tamarra was very dedicated to women?s awareness of breast cancer and a huge supporter of the Susan G. Koman for the Cure. She participated in three, 3-day 60 mile walks, as well as other smaller walks. Completing her last walk three days before she died. She walked the first day but was red carded and finished the walk in her wheelchair with her mother and a doctor by her side. Her beautiful smile beaming as she crossed the finish line. One of the most courageous people you could ever meet, she was an inspiration to everyone she passed along the way, waving and smiling the whole 60 miles.
Our goal is to find a cure so no family has to endure the heartache we have.
OUR PRECIOUS TAMARRA WILL FOREVER BE IN OUR HEARTS, LOVED DEARLY AND NEVER FORGOTTEN!!
Your breast health?
The greatest risk factors for breast cancer are being female and growing older. Breast cancer knows no boundary, be it age, gender, socio-economic status or geographic location. One in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime. That's one in eight within your company, school and organization!
The key to survival is early detection. Three simple steps for early detection are regular mammograms, clinical exams and breast self-exams. And, remember, breast cancer affects more than just the patient; friends and family need support too.
What does Komen do?
For more than 25 years, Komen for the Cure has played a critical role in every major advance in the fight against breast cancer ? transforming how the world talks about and treats this disease, and helping to turn millions of breast cancer patients into breast cancer survivors.
Over the next 25 years, an estimated 25 million women around the world will be diagnosed with breast cancer if we don't find a cure. Komen will not stop until we discover and deliver the cures. That's our promise.
We Will Find the Cure!
