It's been a while... 2019, actually. in 2020 the world was shut down and in 2021 my own significant health issues kept me from walking, so there's a LOT of stored energy ready to be released on the streets of San Diego in 2022!! Stored energy, not only out of my love for this event, but sadness, anger and frustration for the loss of too many i love still dying because of cancer.
The Susan G Komen foundation focuses on patient navigation and advocacy, providing resources for breast cancer patients to understand the American medical system. It has funded research into the causes and treatment of breast cancer. Komen supports not only the patient, but acknowledges the strengh of the patients support system and believes patient support includes network support. Komen has a local and national - the 3 day is put on by the national and the money raised by these events is distributed in the low income areas where breast cancer patients might not otherwise have access to early diagnosis, treatment and support.
Please support me as I commit to an incredible challenge. The Susan G. Komen 3-Day is a 60-mile walk over the course of three days. It will be hard, but it’s not as hard as breast cancer. It’s not as hard as chemo. It’s not as hard as getting bad news at your latest scan. It’s not as hard as saying goodbye. And that’s why I know I have to do this. That’s why I commit. That’s why I’m walking and why I’m raising money – to end breast cancer forever.
I know not everyone is in a position to financially suppprt and to those people I will ask, please share my request with your networks. You never know whos life has been touched by this.
See you on the road in November!
With much love and even more appreciation!!
