The Army of Women is Thankful

We hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving Holiday.

We sure do have a lot to be thankful for, including our amazing Vespa Contest Winner, Betsy Kauffman.

With 357 recruits, Betsy Kauffman, is the official winner of the limited edition pink Vespa.

Congratulations, Betsy! Thank you for all your hard work.

Betsy Kauffman, hailing from Scottsdale Arizona, was able to reach out to such a large group of women mainly by attending the Susan G Komen 3 Day walk and signing walkers up for the Army of Women, right there on-site. She also tapped into her circle of friends and family via email invitation, and put out displays at her local neighborhood spots, such as her hair salon, and yoga studio.

Betsy will drive off with her new Vespa and blog about her journey to recruit more members, chronicling her experience on the Army of Women website. Come back to the website monthly to check out how Betsy is using her Vespa to help build the army.

We want to congratulate all of those who participated in the contest. We know you worked tirelessly to increase awareness, and we wouldn’t be making the strides that we are without you. Because of our dedicated army of women members, we were able to recruit more than 1000 women.

We still have a lot of work to do to get to ONE MILLION STRONG, we’re just getting started. So, even if you aren’t riding around town during Christmas on a new pink Vespa, remember during this Holiday Season to spread the word about the Army of Women along with good cheer about how we are moving breast cancer beyond a cure.

I am looking forward to participating in this study, as I have not qualified for a study thus far. Thank you for your research for this dreaded disease.

Although there is a history of breast cancer on both sides of my family - paternal grandfather & grandmother as well as my maternal aunt’s - two who died of breast cancer before age 45, at age 50, I feel blessed and lucky to have had no cancer. I did have a fibroid tumor removed in my breast at age 35 and a 3.5 lb tumor in my uterus that was taken out via hysterectomy. I, too, have not yet qualified for any of your studies, but I am always interested in improving people’s quality of life. Two of my friends in the neighborhood got breast cancer this past year and had to have mastectomies. Devestating! If I can help with a study, I will.

Good for you, Betsy! I, too, live and survive in Scottsdale, Arizona. My son has walked in the 60 mile in my honor. I will be looking for your pink vespa around town! Patti

paternal grandmother died of breast cancer in her 40’s, 2 cousins one on each side of family died with breast cancer, aunt on mother’s side survior,lost a sister 1 1/2 years ago, 2nd sister 4 year survior. Sisters both carried BRACA 1. myself and another sister negative, 2 sisters not test. The two with the BRACA gene lived healty life styles which leads me to believe enviorment played a big part and the fact they had the BRACA gene. Need to find causes as so far two nieces tested positive. Both in their 20’s and not wanting to do the drastic mastectomy/oopherectomy.
