Yard Sale for the Cure

This is Rachael Smith. In 2004, she was diagnosed with breast cancer. Following a gruelling 9 month battle, Rachael saw the light at the end of the tunnel, and decided to give something back to the medical community that had seen her through her darkest hours. Throughout her entire journey back to health, one thing [apart from love and great medical care] had remained constant for Rachael and her family - the pile of junk in their basement.

This is when lightning struck. Cue Rachael's desire to help others in her position, cue a cause that always needs fighting for, cue the pile of junk in her basement. Yard Sale for the Cure was created as a means to raise funds for Breast Cancer research.
