There are so many "words" to describe why I have decided to do the 60 mile walk ~ but these words wouldn't do justice to the real "feelings" of why I will walk. I am sure that each one of you knows exactly what I mean. So I have added a video to this page that shows how I have felt at different times, in my own life, when my life was being changed by cancer. (There is music that goes with the video too.)
It seems cancer has affected all of our lives way to often ~ I guess plain and simple that is why I will walk 60 miles in 3 days in Seattle this September. The Susan G. Komen walk is a great forum for breast cancer but I will be walking to defeat all forms of cancer. In my way of seeing it when we make great strides against one form of cancer this knowledge is transferred to battle all forms of cancer. That is the real goal that I see: That a cure for all kinds of cancer would be found! To me cancer does not play fair nor does it play by any rules ~ so I am going to "Up My Game" in our battle against cancer by raising funds for cancer research and awareness. I would be privileged to walk to honor someone you know whose life has been affected by cancer!
