I race for my Grandmother, Eula Dunlap, that I never had the opportunity of knowing and for my mother that is here today because of her. Eula Dunlap was diagnosed with breast cancer while pregnant with my mother, Sarah Crews, and the doctors recommended for her to abort the baby. She chose to keep her baby and fight the disease. On December 14th, 1954 my grandmother gave birth to a healthy baby girl even with being so sick with breast cancer and all of the experimental treatments with cobalt. She would die 10 months later from the cancer.
Today our mother is energetic, healthy, and happy because our grandmother strived to survive. We feel like our mother is a Survivor of breast cancer and of life. Our family is touched deeply by this disease and we won't stop racing until there is a cure.
*We have many other friends that we race with each year and majority of them are Survivors. We call ourselves "Pink Ribbon Friends" and the group was formed by a lady in Des Arc, AR. It’s a great group of about 20 ladies and men.
