Race for the Cure

Saturday, May 4, 2019


The Frontier, Research Triangle Park

Join Kamm McKenzie OBGYN as we Race for the Cure! The Susan G. Komen foundation mission is to save lives by investing in breakthrough research to prevent and cure breast cancer. Their goal is to reduce the current number of breast cancer deaths by 50% in the U.S. by 2026. 75% of the proceeds from race day go to local programs, and 25% go to national research.

By signing up for our team, you will be a key player in reaching this goal. Kamm McKenzie will donate an additional $25 for every person who joins our team! We're also a Doctors for the Cure sponsor in the 2019 race.

In the last 42 years of providing general and specialized gynecologic and obstetric care, the physicians at Kamm McKenzie have seen countless patients battle breast cancer. While it is exciting to see that mortality rates due to breast cancer have decreased by 38% since 1989, it is still not enough. Our hope is that one day, the providers at Kamm McKenzie will be able to serve a generation free of breast cancer.

Everyone is welcome on race day, so bring your family – children, spouses, parents, and even grandparents! We will be walking the 5k race together, but you are more than welcome to walk or run at your own pace. Find out more about the race here.

Meet Our Team Captain

 

Zelina was officially diagnosed at age 41 on October 17, 2018 with Invasive Ductal Carcinoma/Stage 2/Triple Negative breast cancer following her very first mammogram. While conducting a self-breast exam, she noticed a lump that was both painful and uncomfortable. After having it looked at, she was told to get a mammogram, which led to the discovery of her cancer.

Zelina thanks her family for being the best support system during her cancer journey and making her experience bearable, her amazing physicians and nurses that have treated her with love throughout the process, and her wonderful church community.

She is also thankful for Kamm McKenzie's support in working with her on attending appointments and treatment without the fear of losing her job.

Zelina looks forward to using her experience to advocate for other women!
