Divas For A Cure Check Presentation: $35,000.00 for Breast Cancer Research

Tuesday, October 28, 2008

On Saturday, October 25, 2008, Divas For A Cure accompanied by the NJ Buffalo Soldiers Motorcycle Club, Family, Friends & DFAC Supporters presented a check to Bill Alexander of M.D. Anderson Cancer Research Center for $35,000.00 at the Harley-Davidson of Ocean County dealership in Lakewood, NJ.

The proceeds from this years' run will be dedicated solely to Breast Cancer Research. This is a small token but a big commitment in the huge struggle for many of us who continue to be plagued with health issues as a result of the fight. Cancer does not discriminate - - but we have made many strives and many of us are still here as a result of the advances and developments of new technology, treatments and medicines developed from research. Countless lives will be saved also as a result of early detection. Elaine Thomas "Hunter" a member of the Buffalo Soldiers Motorcycle Club, Poconos Chapter said it best, "We want a cure in our lifetime!"

Elaine "Hunter" Thomas (2008 DFAC Diva Rider) and Les "Chase" Thomas (2008 DFAC Chase Vehicle Driver) drove in from the Poconos. Michelle "Queen of Hearts (2008 DFAC Diva Rider) & Anthony "Joker" Hampton flew in from Atlantato celebrate with us. John "Morphius" Tucker and his wife drove in to represent from the Central Virginia Buffalo Soldiers Chapter. Karina Jaramillo-Saa, Manager, Market Outreach at Harley-Davidson Motor Company, Milwaukee Corporate Headquarters joined us as well. Thomas "TC" Costley, National President (2008 DFAC RoadCaptain) represented on behalf of the National Association of Buffalo Soldiers and Troopers Motorcycle Club. Nate Gundy, President of the New Jersey Buffalo Soldiers accompanied by 20+ members and associates represented as only real SOLDIERS do.

A special thank you goes out to Asa Murray, owner of the Harley-Davidson of Ocean County dealership for hosting the 2008 Divas For A Cure Check Presentation.

Since the struggle is not over - we have made a commitment to continue a good fight until there is a cure. We hope you will join us in 2009.

Again, thank you to all of you (especially those of you in the motorcycle community) who have supported us along the way and for making this struggle and journey a little easier. I am truly thankful to all of you and for "God's Grace". I am very proud to be a Diva and a Soldier.

Patti's Preventers

Monday, October 13, 2008

This past weekend family and friends of Patti Cauthen participated in the American Cancer Society's "Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk" in Houston, TX. Patti was recently diagnosed with breast cancer and will be undergoing treatment at M.D. Anderson in Houston.

In honor of his mother, Clayton Cauthen, organized a group of walkers that included friends and family and raised more than $1,200.00 for this honorable cause.

Patti's co-workers and friends showed their support on Friday, October 10th, by all wearing their "Patti Preventers " t-shirts to work at United Space Alliance at the Johnson Space Center.

Patti and Clayton
Congratulations to Clayton for a job well done!

Patti's Preventers
