The Amy FoundationSM was established to enable women without health insurance to obtain free screening mammograms and to work with individuals in the field to detect breast cancer in its earliest stages. The money raised from the Walk for Diane goes toward the cost of screening mammograms at Saint Peter's University Hospital, University Medical Center of Princeton at Plainsboro Hospital and diagnostic ultrasounds at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital. We have removed the registration fee but each registrant is asked to raise $70 (half of the cost of a screening mammogram), Your support makes a difference!
A few times in our lives, we encounter a challenge that changes everything. Diane Goodwin found that out in 1993 when she was told she had Stage IV breast cancer. Without hesitation she took on the challenge and told the doctors to watch her be the first one to beat it. She became an inspiration, first to her family and then to all who met her and spoke with her. Her love for life and her desire to inspire others never waivered.
As a true disciple of positive thinking, she managed to achieve 16 “good” years with this illness. In August, 2009, she finally succumbed to this disease, but not without first making it clear that our family mission is to continue to find ways to help others. With that in mind, the family of Diane Goodwin joins The Amy FoundationSM as it strives to help women identify this disease in its earliest stages when it can be most successfully treated. Statistics show that early detection saves lives!
On October 20th, 2013, The Amy FoundationSM welcomes supporters of all ages and abilities for its fourth annual 5k Walk. Bring your family and friends to help us make this day a success!
Walk with us to honor and remember all those whose lives have been affected by breast cancer. The steps you take can bring relief to women who could not otherwise afford a potentially life-saving mammogram.
The Walk for Diane begins and ends at Buccleuch Park, which is located at the intersection of Easton Avenue and Huntington Street in New Brunswick, New Jersey (across the street from Saint Peter’s University Hospital).
