The Breast Cancer Fund ~ Climb Against the Odds

The lovely Holly Valance asked for her message to be shared. I am happy to do so because it is very important that we support such an amazing cause! Just as Holly mentions, I can not think of anyone I know who is untouched by this disease. Very sad.....

The Climb Against the Odds will take place June 15th to 21st, 2008 at Mt Shasta in California. A group of 35 breast cancer survivors & supporters will gather there to take on this challenge of climbing the mountain, which is 14, 162 feet. "Their journey is both a collective effort to prevent breast cancer and a personal challenge to beat the disease."

Holly's Message....

Artists in Support of Climb Against the Odds- The Breast Cancer Fund

To all my wonderful Friends,

I am honored to be working with my good friend actress Sarah Carter "Shark", on an amazing benefit on the 15th of May @ 8pm at the V Lounge 2020 Wilshire Blvd Santa Monica in aid of The Breast Cancer Fund.

I'm actually yet to meet someone who hasn't been affected directly or indirectly by this terrible disease and thats a frightening fact.

The best news is, you can help!

We would be humbled by your presence at the event.

This is a red carpet event.

There are a number of incredible musical artists performing and a silent auction for a number of art pieces. 100% of ticket sales go directly to The Breast Cancer Fund.

Please help us create as much energy around this as possible by buying your tickets at www.breastcancerfund.org/climb08/artists or visit www.bsidesarahcarter.com/invite.html

If you are unable to attend we urge you to show your support by donation and adding your name to our website as a friend of The Breast Cancer Fund.


Yours Faithfully

Holly Valance

I have printed out their form and will mail a check directly.

thanks for posting....and I like what they are doing..."trying to find the environmental causes for the disease".

Another great thing about The Breast Cancer Fund is that they don't fund ghoulish animal experiments! Mice don't get breast cancer, and it's important to spend research dollars on data that can be applied to humans.

Thank you for telling us about this Kandyegirl! It is very important! As always you make sure we have the information we need. How cool of Holly Valance to use her celebrity for good! So many celebrities today don't seem to care about anything other then getting more money for themselves or do anything except get into trouble. Please tell Holly thanks and I will be donating to the cause.
