I lost my mother, Sherrie Gibson, to Ovarian Cancer on September 16, 2000 and my best friend, Tracy, lost her mother, Jeanne Spencer, to Lung Cancer on June 27, 2008. It was that year I started walking to honor our mother's lives but I continue to walk year after year in memory of those who gave it all but lost, in honor of those who have won the battle and for all those still fighting the ugly disease we call cancer. This will be my 11th year and 17th and 18th time to walk 3-Days and 60 miles in the fight against breast cancer.
Cancer wants us to give up hope, to quit and throw in the towel. I will admit at times it sounds tempting. My eyes are running out of tears, my heart is sad from all the loss and my feet are tired from many miles of walking. My spirit, however, remains unshaken and stronger than ever. I REFUSE to let cancer win!
Thanks as always for supporting me whether it’s with friendship, thoughts and prayers or donations. I could not accomplish anything without each and every one of you.
If you would like to donate it would be greatly appreciated and any amount is welcome.
In closing let me share a verse that I try to live by: Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up. Galatians 6:9.
Until there is a CURE,
