The story of breast cancer is the story of people - people we've been able to help through our research, community health programs, advocacy and global work - and the people who are trying to end this disease in laboratories around the world, and in our own neighborhoods. Join us here as we continue to share stories that celebrate the women and men who inspire us all.
"My first four 3-Day walks were in Michigan – but I knew from the very first walk that I wanted to do all 14 in one year. That year was 2012, and what a year it was."
"It’s more than just walking – when you’re sharing 60 miles over three days, there’s an incredible camaraderie that’s established. There’s a saying about the 3-Day: 'You’re never alone unless you want to be.'" - Glen DeKeyser
They say a journey begins with a single step. More than five million steps later, I’m still walking in the journey to fight breast cancer – and I’ll keep walking until we find the cures! When I lost my first wife to breast cancer in 1999, I decided immediately that I wanted something positive to come out of that, so I donated money to her hospital, the Karmanos Cancer Institute in Detroit, with the requirement that they buy a bed for every room so that caregivers could stay with their loved ones. And I kept looking for other ways to give back.
