I’m back again for my 10th year of preparing for the 3 Day 60 Mile Walk. I wondered if I can do this again, each year it gets a little harder to walk those 60 mile, to sleep in a tent, to shower in a truck, and use the dreaded porta johns, but then I think a cancer patient goes through much more pain and suffering and much longer than 3 days. All of this still does not keep me from wanting to help find a cure for breast cancer, even if only in my own little way. So I am registered again this year for the tenth time in The Susan G. Komen 3-Day for the cure 60 Mile Walk on August 3-5th. My husband Richard is also registered for his 5th year of walking.
I’m sure cancer has touched us all in one way or another, either personally, family or friends. I am walking in memory of my sister Fran who was a breast cancer survivor for 9 years, only to be diagnosed with lung cancer in 2002, and then pass away 10 months later. My sister, Betty and sister-in-law Joan are both breast cancer survivors. My husband Richard is a prostate cancer survivor and myself a kidney cancer survivor. I am especially doing it for my granddaughters Olivia and Hannah, as well as all children and the possibility of future generations being able to live cancer free.
According to Susan G. Komen for the Cure, approximately 200,000 American women will be diagnosed with breast cancer this year, and nearly 40,000 will die from the disease. Every person has many wishes; a cancer patient has only one.... to get better. Please pray for those that fight the fight, that they will be cured someday. That's why I'm walking 60 miles in 3 days. I want to help them fight the fight against breast cancer. I hope that you'll share this incredible adventure with me by supporting me in my fundraising efforts.
Thank You for your support!
