PINKTASTIC! BREAST CANCER WALK



In August, 1987, I lost my mom to breast cancer. I was 16 and learned first hand how cancer can, er, does affect a family.








For the last several years, my sister, our kids, and I walk the breast cancer walk in memory of my mom. Our little group dresses up for the walk every year. We pile on the pink. There is no such thing as too much pink in our group. Last year, or maybe the year before, a lady walking near us said, "You girls are PINKTASTIC!" Yes we were!











I can count on one hand, plus a few fingers from the other hand, how many people I know with breast cancer, and well, that is just too many. So ladies, let's be pinktastic and continue to be pinktastic until there is a cure and we no longer have to walk. Pile on the pink and let's hope a cure is found soon!

It looks like you all had a lot of fun on the Walk, I am glad that the experience is a tradition for your family. Breast cancer has not affected my family, but I would like to learn more about the disease so I can support the cause.

Thanks for Walking! I have a good friend who underwent a double mastectomy operation yesterday. This is a great cause.

P.S. I really miss having a mom and wish she were here and these walks were unnecessary. With that said, she isn't and they are so until they find a cure, I will keep walking in the hopes of saving some other 16 year old from losing her mom.....
