share why they Dig Pink!

 

“I support Dig Pink because I know what it’s like to just watch my mother go through radiation and so much pain and know that I can’t do anything about it. I want to raise as much money as I can to help with more research towards this cause, I don’t want any other families going through what women who have cancer have to go through. I want to support every woman out there with cancer, because everyone needs somebody. Everybody needs to know that we’re there for them, and they don’t have to go through this alone. It’s a scary process and experience, so on days I play in Denver, Colorado and they dedicate the day to Dig Pink, it means the world to me to know that not only my family and friends are there for my mom and every other women out there with cancer, even strangers are there for them.”

“I support Dig Pink for all the women in the world. Breast cancer is not something you can get through on your own. It changes not only your life, but everyone who loves and cares about you. You can’t just take medication, go to the doctor and be done. It is a long process and you need all the support you can get. That is why all of us women need to stick together and be each other’s support system. You never know what is in your future so we need to live life to its fullest. I support breast cancer so we can find a cure and prevent more people from having to go through this.”

“The reason I support Dig Pink is because of the many amazing women who have breast cancer. Women don’t choose to have breast cancer or want to. They go through so much pain throughout their treatment and so do their families. Dig Pink lets people my age be able to help support the fight for breast cancer. Dig Pink provides the opportunity for me to help provide those who are looking for a cure more materials to help find the cure. I know people who have cancer both breast and non-breast cancer cancers. Breast cancer is a huge deal and to help be able to find a cure for it would just be incredible, and Dig Pink is a great way to help find a cure.”

“I support Dig Pink because it’s a good cause and breast cancer is all too common an issue for women these days. My grandmother had breast cancer and I know plenty of others who have it or have had it in the past. It’s really hard on them as well as their families and loved ones. I support anything or any cause that might help these women and their families so therefore, I support dig pink.”

“The Side-Out Foundation is wonderful. You can donate money to help with research. Another thing you can use Dig Pink for is education. The website has a numerous amount of links to help inform the patient, care giver or maybe even someone who just wants to support breast cancer research.”

“I support dig pink because so many girls are fighting to cure something that is so hard to cure. By us supporting it every little thing helps. I know that if I was ever to suffer from breast cancer I would want all the support I could get. It does mean a lot to me to raise money and dedicate games/tournaments to breast cancer.”

“I support Dig Pink because it is helping people and a cause. I know many people who support Dig Pink because it is for breast cancer awareness and is helping people’s lives.”
