It's kind of like a United Nations ambassador or Angelina Jolie. OK, not really. On both counts.

I just get to keep blogging about the 3-Day and add in some advice and tips. (Mom, don't laugh. Other people sometimes think I know what I'm talking about.)

To celebrate my new role, let me tell you a story about Susan G. Komen, which I lifted from the Breast Cancer 3-Day Ambassador Fact Sheet:

Nancy G. Brinker promised her dying sister, Susan G. Komen, she would do everything in her power to end breast cancer forever. In 1982, that promise became Susan G. Komen for the Cure and launched the global breast cancer movement. Today, Komen for the Cure is the world's largest grassroots network of breast cancer survivors and activists fighting to save lives, empower people, ensure quality care for all and energize science to find the cures. Thanks to events like the Komen Race for the Cure and the Breast Cancer 3-Days, the organization has invested more than $1.2 billion to fulfill its promise, becoming the largest source of nonprofit funds dedicated to the fight against breast cancer in the world. For more information about Komen for the Cure, breast health or breast cancer, visit komen.org or call 800-Go-Komen.
