Casey students raise money to combat breast cancer



That's important that they are able to talk about it,” Asbery said. “I know that the school was very receptive when I was diagnosed. … They kept a close eye on my boys.”

To take part in the Komen Walk for the Cure, individual team members each have to raise $2,300. That means a team of six has to raise a total of $13,800.

Most of the money raised from the Komen walk goes toward the organization's Research and Training Grant Program, as well as for public health outreach programs for those facing breast cancer, according to the Komen website.

Local team member Amy Jones said the importance of the walk, for her, is to support her friend, Kathy Asbery.

I want to do something to honor her and just our girls and everyone else,” Jones said. “She's my reason.”
