September 2018 will be my 7th year walking in the Seattle Susan G. Komen 3-Day walk for the cure.
I walk for my mother who was taken from me by ovarian cancer when she was only 58 years old; and for my maternal grandma who was taken by colon cancer, six months after my mother died.
I walk for my brother, John, a colon cancer survivor who inspires me every single day with his incredible courage, optimism and boundless energy!
I walk for my sister-in-law, Jane, a breast cancer survivor whose quiet determination fills me with awe.
And for the many other friends, family members and coworkers who have had to face this evil disease.
This year my son is old enough to join me and walk in his first 3-day; I am so looking forward to sharing this journey with him.
Thank you for your support - together we can make a difference.
