Both McDade and Baker, 46, are active in breast cancer awareness and education through the Komen Southwest Michigan Affiliate, which is celebrating its 14th anniversary on by sponsoring the 2010 Komen Southwest Michigan Race for the Cure at 2 p.m.
After years of vigilant screening and testing and wondering whether this would be the visit when the doctor found the lump, the Kalamazoo woman decided last year to get a preventative double mastectomy.
Both women are raising money for breast-cancer research, care and awareness through the local race. Baker, a psychology professor at Western Michigan University and a mother of two, said she first heard about the Komen race while undergoing chemotherapy and radiation treatments at the West Michigan Cancer Center.
The experience led Baker to volunteer with the local Komen group, which she continues to do, and to volunteer with an American Cancer Society program that refers newly diagnosed women to breast cancer survivors for information and support. Along with pelting you with color, the volunteers in the race really encourage you.  Seeing thousands of other participants enjoying themselves and getting active alongside you just stirs up some awesome emotions!

I just went and supported my daughter during one earlier this month, but if I won it'd be my first! So misc I want to get a tattoo that describes pain in chemistry terms that is very very unique.
Baker, a Western Michigan University psychology professor, will walk in Sunday’s Komen Race for the Cure. McDade plans to take part in a timed 5K run, while Baker is signed up to walk with the Plainwell support group she works with, Just Ours.
She and her daughter, now 16, participated in the 2007 race when Baker was still receiving radiation treatment.


The disease surfaced in him, her aunt and cousin, and had killed her father’s mother. I was born with a gene mutation that statistically ensured I would get cancer, and I had the power to do something about it. The blog started as a resource for parents who wanted to make small changes that would make a big impact on a better world and their family. Because of it, at the urging of her oncologist, McDade has also had a complete hysterectomy as a preventative measure against ovarian cancer.
