Every year in the United States, almost 260,000 women are diagnosed with breast cancer – a disease that affects women of all ages, races and socioeconomic status.
Recognizing the impact this disease has had on our sport and in our own lives, Waredaca is launching 3-2-1 GO! End Breast Cancer, a fundraising effort to support the Johns Hopkins Breast Center in Baltimore, MD at our October 21-22, 2017 Training/Novice Classic Three Day Event and Horse Trial to honor Breast Cancer Awareness month.
Waredaca is teaming with Johns Hopkins Breast Center to raise money to support the creation of the Breast Cancer Quality of Care/Quality of Life Measurement Database Fund. This initiative not only focuses on saving the lives of patients, it helps Johns Hopkins provide the best quality of life during and after treatment, including end stage patients. Being able to accurately measure a patient’s experience and the Center’s performance will not only improve care, it will make sure the patient’s goals are respected and preserved.
You can help! You can:
- Agree to donate your muck deposit to this great cause
- Donate money by going directly to Johns Hopkins Breast Cancer Center (https://secure.jhu.edu/form/surgery)
- Buy a 3-2-1 Go! End Breast Cancer saddle pad when you come to the event. All profits go to Johns Hopkins.
