Marsha Gibbons chairs fundraising campaign
Susan G. Komen Central Tennessee announces Marsha Gibbons as the Campaign Chair for the newly released “10×12=1 Fundraising Campaign”. Marsha, who lives in the Upper Cumberland Region, is sharing her breast cancer journey and the Komen Mission to reduce breast cancer deaths by 50 percent by the year 2026.
The “10×12=1 Campaign” is designed to engage people to commit to donate $10 dollars a month for 12 months. This will cover the average cost of a mammogram for someone uninsured, underinsured and without the ability to pay.
The consistent need of early breast cancer detection motivated the decision to secure donations over the course of a year. Recurring giving allows supporters to be involved in Komen’s mission of reducing the number of breast cancer deaths to 50% by 2026 in a convenient, budget friendly way. One mammogram can save a life, and each of us can make a difference.
Marsha says, “My purpose is to make an impact in my community. I support Komen because I know that up to 75% of monies raised stay in the service area. I hope that my efforts help educate women that early diagnosis saves lives, it saved mine.”
The research and the education that Komen has funded in the last 35 years has changed the way we talk about breast cancer. The millions raised by Susan G. Komen supporters have changed the course of diagnosis, treatment and cure not only in the U.S., but the world.
