Brandt’s Harley Davidson helps local group raise money for breast cancer

Local breast cancer survivor, Natalie Rager, founded the Hot Pink Mommas in 2009, and since then, the group has raised $78,967 for the Susan G. Komen Foundation.

“Being a breast cancer survivor means I get to be here each day with my family and friends, and that your health is priceless. My motivation to fight comes from wanting to be as healthy as I can be and to help find a cure for breast cancer,” Rager said in an email.

In October of 2008, at the age of 38, Rager was diagnosed with stage 3 breast cancer after finding a lump herself.

“I did six months of chemotherapy and 40 rounds of radiation, followed by a bilateral mastectomy,” she said.

Rager finished radiation in May of 2009 and completed her first walk in June of 2009 in Chicago, Ill.

“The Chicago walk was life changing for me. Training for the walk helped me stay active and bonded me with amazing teammates. After going through this, I couldn’t have asked for better support,” she said.
