Join the Journey!!!

Good morning all. Well yesterday was an beautiful day to walk 10 miles!!! Yep, yesterday was my cancer walk. What an inspiring day! Over 800 walkers and they raised $100,000. Truly amazing! This walk was started 3 years ago and it is so impressive because all the money raised goes to help local cancer patients. The money has helped them hire a massage therapist to do massages during chemo, to provide an excellent cancer book free to all new patients, and gift cards to local grocery stores and gas stations, and scarfs for new chemo patients. Cancer survivors were given a pink tee shirt and supporters given a white one. That's me in the middle with my mom and my sister. My sister walked ALL 10 miles with me-amazing! My mom went 8, with a little side trip of rowing in the river during one lap around the lake. My mom will be 70 next birthday-pretty impressive huh



This my mom and sister sitting in the bleachers at opening ceremonies.

So on to some of the fun stuff. The winner of the my sister's bag is Alex. Make sure you check her blog out here.

A huge thank you again to all that have supported, have sent cards, and most of all prayers, it all makes a difference!

Okay, done with the tears. God Bless your mom..GO GIRL..Your sister too! We did a one mile walk on mothers day for my mom. She was undergoing radiation so she could not do more. She is doing great and is cancer free. I am so proud of you and your family for what you are showing the world.. Bald is beauty.....
