I have to admit, when Oregon & SW Washington Komen contacted me about this I thought, "Do they want me to wrestle?" But then I thought, "Even if they do, it's for a great cause." Of course the cause is to end breast cancer forever. The WWE thinks breast cancer is totally unacceptable, and every October they launch their partnership with Susan G. Komen National during National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, where they sell merchandise that benefits Komen; they also run breast cancer awareness public services announcements on TV.
This year the first Smackdown Live taping for October happens in Portland at the Moda Center on October 2nd. Our local Komen chose three local women to be honored at the Smackdown; me, for being a survivor and top fundraiser, Lt. Caprice Massey from the Washington County Sheriff's office for being a survivor (she's also on Team Janine), and Compass Oncology surgical oncologist, Dr. Toni Storm-Dickerson. The three of us will be out on stage during the show, and as I understand, no wrestling by us is involved. This is really a wonderful salute to Komen, survivors, those who have passed, and families.
THANK YOU WWE!
The show at the Moda Center is October 2nd at 4:30 PM, and you can come and join us because tickets are still available for purchase.
