At the age of 21, Gabrielle found a lump in her breast. After an agonizing week of waiting for test results she learned it was not cancer. “Although I am free from breast cancer, I am painfully aware that I may have it in the future. My mom, my grandma, my best friend or my sister may get it too,” she writes on her Susan G. Komen 3-Day for the Cure fundraising page.
Gabrielle hopes to raise at least $2,300 for the Susan G. Komen Foundation. “I am walking for every woman who has ever been scared, sad or suffering because of this awful disease. I am walking for you, for me and for future generations of women,” she writes.
This weekend her family is holding a garage sale fundraiser at 2335 NW 95th St. to help Gabrielle raise money. Items for sale include purses, appliances (washing machine, fax/scanner machine, tvs and foot spas), novels, household neccesities like lightbulbs, tools and gadgets and beautiful glassware.
