The family and friends of Blanca Suarez are uniting to help with her battle against breast cancer. Please show your support!

Hello again Family and Friends!

As you know, our mother was diagnosed with Stage III Breast Cancer in March 2012. Since then she has undergone a mastectomy and is in her second phase of chemotherapy. We are told the worst is over!! Thanks to your generous contributions in our Race for the Cure Detroit fundraiser, she was able to pay off two months of her insurance. Words cannot express our gratitude and love for all the support we have received.

As part of Breast Cancer Awareness month we will be participating in the San Jose, CA race for the cure on October 27, 2012 with a small team of close family and friends.

We hope to raise funds for her chemotherapy and radiation treatments. We ask that you please help support our cause!

Momma is one of Detroit's finest, help cheer her on!
