Abbi Rose's Beautiful Rendition of Hazorim B'dimah Supports Susan G. Komen for the Cure

Abbi Rose's stunning track, "Hazorim B'dimah"  will be raising funds for an extremely important charity, and one that is also close to my heart, "The Susan G. Komen For a Cure" Foundation.  

It was started by Nancy G. Brinker with a promise to her dying sister, Susan G. Komen, that she would do everything in her power to end breast cancer forever.  In 1982, that promise became Susan G. Komen for the Cure and launched the global breast cancer movement.  

Today, Komen for the Cure is the world’s largest grassroots network of breast cancer survivors and activists fighting to save lives, empower people, ensure quality care for all and energize science to find the cures.  Thanks to events like the Komen Race for the Cure, they have invested more than $1.2 billion, becoming the largest source of nonprofit funds dedicated to the fight against breast cancer in the world.

Invigorated by their 25th anniversary in 2007, they realigned resources, refocused research efforts and recommitted to finally, once and for all, finish what they started.  They will invest an additional $2 billion over the next decade - by 2017 - to do exactly that.  

Here are some statistics recently released by Komen for the Cure:

  • Without a cure, 1 in 8 women in the U.S. will continue to be diagnosed with breast cancer – a devastating disease with physical, emotional, psychological and financial pain that can last a lifetime.
  • Without a cure, an estimated 5 million Americans will be diagnosed with breast cancer – and more than 1 million could die – over the next 25 years.
  • Without a cure, an estimated 25 million women around the world will be diagnosed with breast cancer – and 10 million could die – over the next 25 years.

Let's help Susan G. Komen win the fight and end breast cancer forever by donating to Abbi's charity.  Additionally, I'd like to thank Abbi for sharing her wonderful voice with us and her generosity and continued support in the fight against breast cancer.
