REGISTRATION IS UNDERWAY NOW FOR THE SUSAN G. KOMEN TRI- CITIES RACE FOR THE CURE AND IT IS A SPECIAL YEAR AS WE GATHER TO RAISE MONEY AND SUPPORT FAMILIES IN OUR AREA IN HERE WITH MORE NOW IS AMY DUNAWAY WITH SUSAN G. KOMEN EAST TENNESSEE. CERTAINLY AS WE ARE GEARING UP AND NOW THAT YOU ARE VERY BUSY GETTING EVERYBODY TOGETHER FOR THIS SPECIAL YEAR AND YOU SAID THERE ARE SOME IMPORTANT DEADLINES THAT WE MIGHT WANT TO BE AWARE OF. MARCH 2 IS THE EARLY BIRD DEADLINE SO YOU CAN SAVE $10 IF YOU REGISTER BETWEEN NOW AND THEN WHICH IS A BIG SAVINGS FOR THOSE WHO WANT TO BRING A FAMILY AND ALSO WITH THE 15th ANNIVERSARY ARE ASKING SURVIVORS TO DESIGN A TEACHER TO BE GIVEN OUT TO ONE WHO RAISES $150 OR MORE. AND OF COURSE EVERY YEAR IS IMPORTANT BUT THIS YEAR YOU ARE REALLY WANTING TO FOCUS ON HOW FAR WE HAVE COME LOOKING AT WHAT IT WAS LIKE 15 YEARS AGO WHEN THIS ALL BEGAN EXPECT TO HAVE BEEN A LOT OF ADVANCES IN TECHNOLOGY AND TREATMENT TOUCHED IN SOME WAY BY SUSAN G. KOMEN DOLLARS. IT STAYS HERE LOCALLY AND PROVIDES THE SERVICES. WHEN SOMEBODY IS BATTLING BREAST CANCER, WE CAN HELP OUT WITH UTILITY BILLS AND THINGS LIKE THAT BUT THE REMAINING FUNDS GOES INTO A RESEARCH POD. WE HAVE IN SOME WAY TO SEE THAT THE LOCAL FOLKS OR THE NATIONAL RESEARCH. WE ARE HOPING CURRENT WE ARE HELPING PEOPLE CURRENT BATTLING AND THE NEXT GENERATION. AND I WAS TALKING ABOUT HOW YOU ARE AVAILABLE TO HELP PEOPLE BUT YOU ARE ALSO FULL CIRCLE HELPING THEM THROUGH THE PROCESS. IF YOU DO NOT HAVE INSURANCE OR DOES NOT COVER IS SCREENING PER WEEK WE GRANT THAT INTO DOCUMENT AND ARE ABLE TO HELP CONNECTED WITH A PROVIDER BUT IF YOU’RE IN THE MIDDLE OF BATTLING BREAST CANCER, YOUR RENT AND YOUR MORTGAGE STILL NEEDS TO BE PAID. THAT IS WHERE WE CAN ALSO HELP. ALSO YOU LOOK AT THAT DAY AND WHAT IT IS LIKE FOR THOSE FAMILIES TO SEE THAT SUPPORT NOT ONLY FROM THEIR OWN FAMILIES BUT FROM THE COMMUNITY . IT IS REALLY EMOTIONAL EVEN IF YOU ARE SOMEONE WHO IS THERE TO SUPPORT SOMEONE ELSE. TO SEE THE SURVIVORS WHO ARE EITHER JUST DIAGNOSED OR TO SEE THAT COMRADARY AND TO SEE THEM SUPPORTING ONE ANOTHER AND TO SEE WHAT COMES AROUND THEM IT REALLY IS EMOTIONAL. AND ONE OF THE THINGS THAT YOU CONTINUE TO HEAR FROM SURVIVORS IS HOW MUCH COURAGE IT GIVES THEM AND TO SHARE THAT STORY WITH SOMEONE ELSE. WHEN YOU SEE SOMEONE WHO HAS JUST BEEN DIAGNOSED AND THEY SEE THOSE SURVIVORS THEY THINK THERE IS A LIGHT AT THE END OF THE TUNNEL AND YOU KNOW THAT IT IS ANOTHER 5K BUT IT IS ALSO ANOTHER YEAR OF SURVIVORSHIP FOR THEM AND WE LOVE TO HONOR THAT. NOW IS THE TIME TO GO AHEAD AND SIGN UP SO THAT YOU CAN SORT OF START YOUR FUNDRAISING. IT IS OUR SIGNATURE FUNDRAISING EVENT. IT RAISES THE MAJORITY OF OUR FUNDS FOR THE YEAR TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE. IF YOU REGISTER TODAY YOU CAN SAVE THE $10 THEN SEND YOUR FRIENDS AND FAMILY EMAILS. THAT $150 IF YOU ASKED 10 PEOPLE FOR $15 HE WOULD BE AT THAT LEVEL. AND IF YOU MULTIPLY THAT BY THE NUMBER OF PEOPLE THAT YOU HAVE AND EVERY YEAR THE RACES SEEMS TO GROW WITH MORE PEOPLE SHARING THEIR STORIES. HOW MANY PEOPLE DO YOU USUALLY EXPECT? YOU ARE LOOKING AT $150,000 IN FUNDRAISING ALONE. AND THAT IS ONE OF THE THINGS YOU PUSH IS HOW IMPORTANT IS SCREENING IS IT IS VERY NICE TO KNOW THAT IF YOU ARE DIAGNOSED THERE ARE SUSAN G. KOMEN DOLLARS THAT COULD HELP YOU. WE DO GRANT DOLLARS TO THE HEALTH DEPARTMENT AND IF YOU DO NOT HAVE INSURANCE AND YOU MEET THOSE GUIDELINES AND YOU ARE DIAGNOSED YOU ARE AUTOMATICALLY ENROLLED TO COVER THE COST OF YOUR TREATMENT SO IF YOU MEET THOSE GUIDELINES THAT IS A BONUS . THOSE SAFETY NETS ARE IN PLACE AND ALSO SUSAN G. KOMEN DOLLARS ARE THERE TO HELP WITH THOSE EVERYDAY EXPENSES. THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR WHAT YOU DO OR DON’T FORGET THE EARLY BIRD SPECIAL IS ENDING.
