Join Dr. Susan Love and Dr. Susan Love Research Foundation for an active day of family fun on May 17 at Walk with Love in Pacific Palisades, CA. Bring your kids, your dogs, and your friends to the Foundation's annual 5K walk/run and help us raise much needed funding for innovative breast cancer research. You can walk with us in Southern California or be active in your own community. You and your team can use whatever activity you enjoy to raise money and awareness. Learn more about how you can show your support as a Virtual Participant on our website. TBG West Walks for Stella team captain Charlotte Ellevold shares with us why her team continues to Walk with Love:
'Those of us on the TBG West Walks for Stella team participate in Walk with Love for many different reasons, but the biggest reason of all is our love for Stella Perez and keeping her memory alive. The walk provides us with a way to come together and share with one another those beloved memories of our dear Stella, while allowing us to have a sense of accomplishment in raising money for a cause that we hold close to our hearts. Whether we walk in Pacific Palisades, or virtually in other parts of the world, we proudly sport Stella's favorite colors (hot pink and lavender) in her honor.'
Paws with Love team captain Linda Wilkes shares why she started the team four years ago:
'Throughout the years, I've turned to Dr. Love's wisdom and advice around women's health. When I was diagnosed with breast cancer five years ago, the search for information and guidance became even more personal and urgent. I needed to know what my options were and what was going to happen along the way. I had a wonderful team of doctors involved in my care and I had Dr. Susan Love's Breast Book on my nightstand. 'My family and friends were a source of support and comfort. But there were times when I just needed the unconditional love of my dog, Holiday. She knew how to just simply be with me and what to say with every wag of her tail. 'This will be my 4th walk. Every year, Holiday and her buddy Max have walked by our sides. But being the friendly Golden Retriever that she is... Holiday is happiest traveling in a large pack, so bring along your furry friends and support our Paws with Love team.'
