Help me show breast cancer that I have no fear!

I have lots of fears. Two of the biggest: horror movies, blood, guts, being startled, that sort of thing and the other is being diagnosed with breast cancer. Ok, so the title of this post may be a bit misleading…

In the interest of facing my fears I have decided to attend Universal Orlando’s Halloween Horror Nights. This is something I swore I would never, ever, ever do. I have said on many occasions that you could not pay me to go. But alas, I will be attending in 10 short days!!!

Just the thought of walking through the front gates to attend this horrific event scares me. My heart rate increases just thinking about entering the scare zones. My breath quickens when I recall that there will be roaming chainsaw gangs this year. I really can’t believe I’m doing this. Just being there, just going to the event is scary enough. There’s no WAY I am going into any of the houses!

…..or is there……..?


In a few weeks I will participate in the 2015 Komen Central Florida Race for the Cure. Every single one of us has been impacted by cancer of some form. I have battled illness and many of my family members have battled cancer and other serious illnesses. I truly am afraid that I will one day be diagnosed with breast cancer. It may be irrational, but it’s true.

Help me show breast cancer that I can overcome my fears. If I raise $750 for the fight against breast cancer by September 25th, I will face one of my greatest, most paralyzing fears and go through one of the houses at Halloween Horror Nights!

For some people it may seem silly that I am so afraid of the houses, but for me the thought of going through one of these houses is incredibly frightening and makes me very uncomfortable. If I know I have to face it for a good cause it will give me much needed motivation.

More importantly, regardless of this crazy goal of mine, if you can spare any donation to help us fight this all-too-common disease, it would mean a lot!
