It’s been 44 years since my mother succumbed to this terrible disease called breast cancer.
In 2002, I met some awesome people and became part of what we affectionately call the 3-Day Bubble. The Susan G. Komen 3-Day is a 60-mile walk over the course of three days. I completed my 17th walk in November, 2021 in San Diego, California. Raising $2,300, training, and walking 60 miles is challenging but not as challenging as what breast cancer patients and their families have to endure.
I walk 60 miles so my children and grandchildren and all those after them do not have to know how terrible this disease can be. There have been tremendous advances in detection, treatment and education and i am hopeful there will be a cure soon.
Until then, I walk because everyone deserves a lifetime. I walk because I can’t walk away.
Thank you for your love and support,
