Here we are in the heat of summer, but one day Fall's cooler temps will bring around October, and the annual Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure.
My church will once again have a team, and I would love to have your support if you feel so moved! Please go here to visit my race page. I and 25,000 other walkers will be swarming the area around Northpark Mall on October 18, 2008.
My reason for doing this is, in general, because we have to get rid of this terrible disease. Sure. But also because my friends Janet and Gina, whom you've read about in these pages over the past years, both fought breast cancer before developing the other cancers that took their lives. There are also some amazing ladies in my life who have survived the disease, some for many years.
I want to make a difference. Please help if you can. And hey...if you'll be in the area that day, plan to join my team! an option on the page linked above.
Here are Beryl (in pink survivor shirt) and me from the 2006 race.
