Barbells for Boobs 2021

Here is my Barbells for Boobs 2021 fundraiser and this is why I support this organization.

It’s that time of year again where soon everything will be covered in pink to bring awareness to breast cancer. Did you know that some companies just make it pink to get you to buy things thinking you are donating to breast cancer? Pretty sneaky right?

Every year since 2019 I have been fundraising for Barbells for Boobs. Barbells for Boobs is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization. They are a community taking action in breast cancer. Click on the link to learn more about their organization

What will your donation help support? By donating to my fundraiser you will directly help support their RAD programs. The link I provided here goes into their RAD programs. I am one of the RAD women in this program. I can not express how much they have done for me over the past couple years. I have discovered a community of women that also have be impacted by breast cancer. The relationships I have made through this community are priceless. They also have Coach Johnna, a strength coach, who has definitely helped me come out of my comfort zone getting me ready for Global GRACE this year in NYC. More on that later. Then they have Coach Keisha who is there for your mental health. There is so much that women go through just being diagnosed and then treatment. Most of the women I have met through this were physically active prior to their diagnosis. Then to have that taken from you in an instant is rough. The road to accepting where you are now versus where you were before cancer is a tough journey. I just completed one of their programs called B student. Where each week we would get on a zoom call and talk about a subject that was our homework for the week; it varied on which semester we were in. The semesters were Mind, Body & Soul. I would not be where I am today without the help of barbells for boobs.

One of the most amazing things was when I had the opportunity to go to Barbells for Boobs HQ in July and meet not only everyone who puts their heart and energy into making this organization run but I also got to meet other RAD women as well! Take a look at these beautiful strong women.

If you are thinking about how you can support women impacted by breast cancer just click here to make a donation. Thank you to all who have already donated it means a lot to me. 1 in 8 women will receive a breast cancer diagnosis in their lifetime.

I was diagnosed with two different breast cancers in August 2017. In June 2019 one of them spread to my brain. What started as a fight through breast cancer became a battle living with metastatic disease.
