Laundromat Donates to Stop Breast Cancer

All the proceeds from the November "Wash for the Cure" event at the Town Line Laundromat will help with breast cancer research.

 

The owner of the Town Line Laundromat gave a donation to the Susan G. Komen foundation Wednesday morning to help continue the fight against breast cancer.

Nancy Sousa, who was diagnosed with breast cancer in 1994, presented a check for $3,139 to Anne Morris, executive director of the Connecticut Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for Cure.

During the month of October, the laundromat took donations, held raffles and sold pink laundry bags. The laundromat held its second annual "Wash for the Cure" on Nov. 2, which was postponed due to autumn snowstorm, with all proceeds from the self-service washes and dries being donated to the Connecticut Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for Cure.

"This is a personal battle for me," Sousa, who was diagnosed with metastatic breast cancer in May 2010, said. "We need to find a cure."

Members of the  attended the presentation.

Hi Nancy, Just wanted to let you know about our organization for metastatic women. Go to mbcn.org and you will find good information about our mission to educate and advocate.
