Stridesforsamantha – a fundraiser you should know about!

There is a lady named Samantha Schafer from Utica NY that has recently been diagnosed with stage 3 triple negative (extremely aggressive) breast cancer. She underwent a double masectomy followed by chemotherapy. During the chemotherapy she had complications where she almost lost her life. She suffered from extensive blood loss for days, blood clots and all the while had to deal with complications from Crohne’s disease (a serious intestinal disorder that causes much pain and lasts one’s whole life).
