Do you have a friend or family member affected by breast cancer? My name is Matt Allen. I am 26 years old and live in Long Beach, California. My mother, Patti Allen, was diagnosed with breast cancer in 1990. I remember feeling that I wanted to show my love and support, but I wasn�t sure how. Now 11 years later, my mom is a breast cancer survivor and, in her honor, I have created a way for you and me to celebrate the lives of breast cancer survivors and to raise money to help others in their fight against this
terrible disease.

Not only did they let us the place for the silent auction, they also were our main �corporate� (ha, ha) sponsor. Big thanks also to Ellen for making the reception a success. Others who helped out on the last leg include: Jen Breuklander, Nezinscot Farms, my mom, dino, Terry at Memorial, Jennifer Tuck, Diane at Three Rivers Rafting for the cool photo, Michele from Breast Friends (thanks in advance for lunch next week), everyone who showed up to the reception and helped devour 6 dozen donuts, Bar Harbor Bikes, Jones Bikes, the people who donated money while on the road, and of course,
